After a sunny Sunday, our next storm arrives on Monday. And while it eventually brings a warm up, we first have to endure a burst of snow in parts of New England.
Clouds will return for everyone as the system approaches from the Mid-West Sunday night, and a band of snow will follow. That will arrive in parts of Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine around and just after midnight. The periods of snow will continue there into the morning commute, but as warmer air moves in, we’ll see that switch over to plain rain with time.
Prior to the changeover, expect a widespread coating-2” where it snows. In the higher terrain of the Northeast Kingdom, and along the Green and White Mountains, more like 2-4”+ will accumulate. A few flakes may even be spotted in the Berkshires and along the Route 2 corridor in Massachusetts, but we’re not looking at anything more than a quick coating on grassy surfaces before we warm up there, too.
During the rest of the day on Monday expect mostly cloudy and breezy conditions. Scattered showers will be around, especially in Northern New England, with highs in the 50s.
In Boston, where the Red Sox open the season at home, skies will be mostly cloudy with temperatures ranging from the low to middle 50s. A brief spot shower is possible, but it won’t be a big deal.
Scattered showers and downpours will be more widespread on Tuesday, and then we keep our eyes focused on what may be an unsettled stretch from mid-week all the way into next week. There are signs that our atmosphere may go into a “blocking” pattern, essentially keeping us fair game for clouds and scattered showers for a few days.
