Forecast: Turning Colder Today With More Rain And Snow Midweek

The rain of last night is now over and we're looking at clearing skies and falling temperatures. I noticed more of the snow cover that was left on the ground outside of Boston disappearing on Sunday and this morning nearly all of it is gone except those big piles.

Temperatures today will be warmest this morning and then continue to fall during the course of the rest of the afternoon. I'm not really worried about a flash freeze because the rain ended a while ago and there's enough wind to dry things out before temperatures get too cold.

I wrote about the fact that winter isn't over and I still believe that we have more cold and more snow to come. This week our next chance of inclement weather is Wednesday, with another storm system which will move up from the south bringing a mixed bag of precipitation.

At this point it looks like it will start as snow but change over to rain on Wednesday. The amount of cold air in place in the exact track of the storm will determine exactly where the changeover is and how much snow falls before the rain.

As a storm system exits the area it looks like we will have typical February temperatures the rest of the week and then it turns milder again this weekend.

I'm not convinced that winter is going to make a boring come back but I'm also not convinced that spring is going to arrive early I still think that the next 4 weeks bring oscillating periods of cold and once as well as some more accumulating snow.
