Forecast: Snow Ends Today, Cold Pattern Ahead
It was a beautiful sunny Sunday across the region, but overnight a storm system has brought snow. As has been the case the entire winter, this isn't major snow storm. With many people off today and schools closed, the effects of this particular snow will be less pronounced. If you are driving this morning it will be slow, with afternoon improvement.
Snow began overnight and continues, though lighter this morning. By the time this is done, 2-5 inches will be on the ground with some spots in that 6 inch range, south of Boston. Snow will continue to fall at varying intensities through the early afternoon, but mostly quite light and we can see another inch or two during the day
Across Southeastern Massachusetts the snow may be heavy enough to produce a band or two of 4-6 inches. This is where winter storm warnings are posted.
The snow will come to an end Monday evening and Tuesday looks partly sunny and chilly. We won't see much melting of the snow because temperatures will stay below freezing for much of the day.
A new storm arrives for Wednesday night and Thursday with a mixed bag of precipitation. This is one of those systems that likely produces a few inches of snow at the beginning, but there will be a change before it ends over to rain.
The pattern continues to look somewhat active through the end of the month. There may be another storm coming in for next weekend with similar timing to this one but obviously that's so far away it's just a suggestion.
