Boston Weather: 39.0°F | A Few Clouds

Weather: Let it Snow

By Bill Ramstrom
STAFF METEOROLOGIST -- A persistent low hanging off the coast of Nova Scotia has been responsible for the wintry weather pattern over the last few days; this will continue through the weekend and into next week as well. The storm is spinning bands of snow across our area today, and light snow or flurries will continue into the day on Saturday. Cold air will be supplied from Canada throughout the weekend, keeping the precipitation mostly snow. By Sunday, we can expect somewhat nicer weather, but another large storm will be forming in the South, bringing a strong chance for snow on Monday.

The snow for today and tomorrow will be fairly light. Pavement and roads will likely stay clear, with the only accumulation on grassy surfaces. We can expect a couple of inches of snow by Saturday noon. The rest of Saturday will feature broken clouds and chilly temperatures. We may see some sun early on Sunday, but clouds will overspread the sky during the afternoon as the high clouds ahead of the next storm system move our way.

Today: Snow flurries through the day. Light accumulation. Highs: low 30’s (1-2°C).

Overnight: Flurries continue. A few icy spots. Low 32°F (0°C).

Saturday: Snow flurries end during the morning. Cloudy and cool afternoon. High: 38°F (3°C).

Saturday night: Cloudy and cool. Low: 30°F (-1C).

Sunday: Clouding up with a cool easterly wind. Highs 38°F (3°C).

Monday: Moderate to heavy snowstorm is possible. Temperatures will remain cold.
