A strong coastal storm will impact eastern New England with snow on Saturday into Sunday.

From the Falmouth Fire Department, February 14th, 2014: A strong coastal storm will impact eastern New England with snow on Saturday into Sunday. Southern stream energy will spawn a surface low over the mid Atlantic states on Saturday. This system will intensify rapidly as it moves to a position east of Cape Cod early Sunday morning. Snow amounts remain strongly in question at this hour. The speed of the surface low and how fast it gets going will determine our ultimate affects.
