The storm is now mostly over with snow totals around 10 inches quite common in the Boston area. A few spots hit the 12 inch mark, while areas south of Boston seeing less snow.
As we head into Wednesday evening, light precipitation will continue in various forms. Most of the area will see spotty light snow or freezing drizzle and a bit of sleet. The light snow and sleet could accumulate a coating to an inch in the Boston area by midnight. This means when you finish clearing the walk or driveway this evening, there could be some additional precipitation to clean-up come Thursday morning.
As temperatures fall below freezing overnight, any residual moisture will refreeze and slippery walking and driving will ensue.
Early Thursday, skies will clear and I am expecting lots of sunshine for the next three days. There will be some clouds mixing with the sunshine at times as temperatures remain cold, only reaching the upper 20s for the balance of the week.
The next storm threat is Sunday afternoon through Monday. There will be a big storm developing. However, the amount of snow could be near zero if the storm stays hundreds of miles off the coast or a much more significant storm if the track takes the system closer to the region. It’s still several days away and impossible to know at this stage.
Wednesday night: Light snow before midnight with a coating to one inch possible. Turning colder by morning with lows in the upper teens.
Thursday: Partly sunny with highs in the mid 20s.
Thursday night: Partly cloudy and cold with lows 10 to 15.
Friday: Mostly sunny with a high in the upper 20s. Winds will be brisk.
Friday night: Partly cloudy and cold with lows 12 to 16.
Saturday: Mostly sunny with highs 25 to 30.
Saturday night: Mostly cloudy with lows in the teens.
Sunday: A chance of snow later in the day and at night.
