Forecast: Winter Weather Not Done Yet

The weather pattern is going to continue to be quite chilly for about another week and we do have three likely chances of precipitation, some of which could bring snow.

Today is opening day for the Red Sox and it's going to be a cold one, but at least it won't be raining or snowing. Look for readings just into the lower 40s for the first pitch. Bring gloves and a hat, especially if you are sitting in the shade.

Tomorrow, a warm front approaches the area, but because the air will be cold enough when the precipitation arrives, I do expect to see some snow. Look for a very chilly start.

Any accumulation will be confined to the grassy surfaces, where there could be a coating to an inch. Over northern Worcester County and back to the Berkshires there could be up to 3 inches — again mostly on the grass.

On Saturday another weather system will approach the area from the south. This has a little more moisture with it so there could be a bit more in the way of snowfall. It wouldn't surprise me if in some areas, the ground turns white again.

We'll have to wait and see the exact timing of the system and its track to know how much will end up on the grass and whether there will be any accumulation on the pavement. It dries out for Sunday which will also be quite chilly.

Next week there is a potential coastal storm on Tuesday with rain or wet snow. Once that system passes the pattern should undergo a shift and it looks like we will get into warmer, more pleasant conditions toward the end of next week.
