Sunday brings periods of snow throughout the day. At times the snow will be moderate and at other times quite light. Again, a few inches of snow is possible.

Sunday night through Monday more snow will continue with the steadiest and heaviest part of the storm. The snowfall rates won’t be as heavy as some of the storms we have seen this winter, but travel again is impacted.

If there are going to be cancellations during this event, Monday is the most likely period for them to occur. This storm won’t be the type of situation where Logan Airport is closed, but there will be delays and cancellations.

The storm ends on Monday night sometime near midnight. A few snow showers can occur before sunrise Tuesday. Cold, dry weather continues for the rest of next week, with bitter cold air possible next weekend.

A stalled frontal system to the south of New England will act as focal point for areas of snow for much of this weekend and Monday. While the snow won’t be heavy most of the time, the long duration event will end up yielding some impressive totals.

Saturday: Sunshine through thickening clouds. Some snow showers in the afternoon.

Saturday Night: Snow, steadiest later in the evening and overnight. Lows 17-22.

Sunday: Periods of snow. High near 27.

Sunday Night: Periods of snow continue. Low 17-24.

Monday: More snow. Highs 25-33.

Tuesday: Clearing, then partly sunny. Highs in the lower 30s.

Wednesday: Partly sunny, with a high near 25.
