There’s nothing quite like a fresh coat of Saturday snow to kick off the holiday season in New England.

Forecasters predicted snowfall and strong winds in the later part of the day. On Friday, the National Weather Service said, “Rain changes to snow on Sat. afternoon into evening with significant accumulations possible. Snowfall rates could reach 1-2 inches/hr with difficult travel and scattered power outages.”

Here’s what Boston meteorologists are saying about Saturday’s ‘impactful winter storm’

The last significant snowfall in the region was a rare October snow storm (fitting for 2020.) Many New Englanders near and far made the most of the fall storm and sent in photos of their spooky, yet fun wintry scenes in the snow.

“Had to shovel out the pumpkins to light them but can’t be mad at the first snow of the season – even if it’s in October!” wrote Allison Fernandes, @allycobbnandes, in Reading.

“Photos from the snow today in Lexington! Easily 4-5 inches.” wrote Joyce Dvorak.

Now it’s December, chilly, and snowy in time for the holidays ahead. Perhaps you’ll go sledding or build a snowman, or your dog will run laps intrigued by the cold development in the yard. Send us photos of your own personal winter wonderland and let us know your reaction to the latest snowfall by emailing [email protected]. Please attach the photo, include your name and town, and we’ll publish your snow photos in an upcoming Boston.com article.
