Wintry Few Days for New England

Intensifying low-pressure will race across southern New England during sunrise Sunday, bringing a burst of heavy snow.

We may have snowy roads for a brief time early in the day, but most of the accumulation will take place on non-paved surfaces.

The snow is expected to end by 10 a.m., with several inches of accumulation in the hills, down to just a coating or an inch near the shore.

Sunday afternoon features a mixture of sun and clouds with a few flurries and very cold wind.

Another wave of low-pressure will travel along the coast of southern New England during Monday, bringing another mix of snow and rain to central and southern New England.

The rain-snow line is pretty close to the coast, so for most of us that means a snowy Monday.

Snow may continue through the afternoon and even into the evening and southeastern Massachusetts, where rain will change back to snow before ending.

Accumulations of a few inches are likely on non-paved surfaces.

Roads may need treatment early in the day, but probably are just wet during the afternoon, high temperature should get just above freezing.

Another batch of cold wind comes in Monday night pushing the temperatures close to record cold lows in the single numbers north and teens south.

Tuesday looks like a sunny day, but continued windy and cold with a high temperature in the 30s.

Wednesday may also feature record cold early in the day, but with light wind and sunshine it turns pleasant with a high temperature well into the 40s.

Another potent weather system moves in on Thursday, with warmer weather and strong wind from the south, rain developing during the afternoon.
That storm may stall here on Friday, with the possibility of rain changing to snow in western New England.

Dryer and seasonable weather is likely to return for next weekend.
