Boston Weather Mavens See Primarily Rain with Saturday PM Event

We love weathercasters that flash a sense of humor and irreverence every once in a while. WHDH provided a good chuckle to the Twittersphere with a late evening tweet summarizing the prediction process for this weekend's weather event.

Indeed, the majority of forecasters now see this weekend's precipitation as primarily rain for Boston. None see the possibility for anything more than one inch (primarily at the tail end of the storm) and WCVB has removed virtually all mention of any snow accumulation whatsoever for Boston.

As of late Friday night, here's how the area's weathercasters saw this weekend's "event" unfolding:

WHDH: Possibility a coating of snow as the storm departs
WCVB: Mostly rain. No accumulations of snow.
WBZ: Coating to half inch of snow possible at the end.
FOX25: Slushy coating possible
NWS: Snow accumulation up to an inch
NECN: Maybe an inch on the back side of the storm

A progressive forecast by weather outlet of this event dating back to Monday night can be found in all its beauty here.

All forecasters are also tracking potential snow events for Tuesday and Thursday of next week but there is certainly nothing inevitable with either event. Follow us on Twitter and Facebook for any updates.
