Boston will experience wintry precipitation today as a storm continues to track northeastward near the East Coast. The associated low pressure center will move towards Boston by this evening and continue toward Nova Scotia thereafter. Although this storm is not expected to be a classic nor’easter, Boston will still experience some gusty winds and mixed precipitation through the day. The metro area should expect anywhere from 2–5 inches of snow by tonight, with higher amounts as you move inland towards New Hampshire and the Worcester area. An easterly wind today will bring warmer air off the ocean, and thus Boston could see light rain mixed with the snow from late morning to mid-afternoon. By evening, snow accumulations should become apparent as ground surfaces cool below freezing.
As the storm exits, cloudy skies and some residual precipitation should linger for tomorrow. Gusty west winds will also be prominent in the wake of the low pressure system. Glimpses of sunshine should greet us by Thursday and Friday.
