Get your snowblowers ready, New England.

The National Weather Service says a possible nor’easter is heading our way. The strong ocean storm will arrive on Sunday.

“This type of storm can produce a foot of snow,’’ said Glenn Field, warning coordination meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Taunton. “But the question is, where? We can’t pin that down yet.’’

The storm will impact “a wide area of southern New England in some way, shape, or form,’’ Field said.

The bulk of the white stuff will fall Sunday night and Monday morning, said Field.

But parade-goers beware: Flakes could begin falling by mid-afternoon on Sunday, he said. The South Boston St. Patrick’s Day parade begins at 1 p.m.

“We’re not 100 percent sure that it’s even going to start Sunday afternoon, but there’s a chance,’’ said Field.
