Weather: Icy FridayBy Bill Ramstrom
STAFF METEOROLOGIST -- A strong storm will pass just to our south today, and will bring a nasty mix of winter weather to the Boston area. Snow will likely break out around noon today with a change over to ice and sleet for a time. Later tonight the mix will change to plain rain, and temperatures will likely rise to near 40°F (4°C), melting some of the accumulated slush.
Fortunately, after this storm passes, a warmer airmass will move in, melting any remaining snow/sleet accumulations. Saturday will have a high in the upper 40’s (8°C), with Sunday will be a bit cooler, but Monday will also be sunny and again in the 40’s.
Today: Snow this afternoon, ice this evening. Temperatures rising to 32°F (0°C).
Tonight: Sleet/freezing rain changing to rain. Temperatures 32-34°F (0-2°C).
Tomorrow: Rain ends in the morning, then some sun. High 47° (8°C).
Sunday: Mostly sunny. Highs 40°F (4°C).
Monday: Sunny and warmer. High 48°F (8°C).
