    (Published Sunday, Feb. 24, 2019)

    Slippery travel this morning will become less of a problem during the day as temperatures climb close to 50 degrees in some spots.

    The wintry mix early today north and west of Boston, in places like the Merrimack Valley and Central Massachusetts, will retreat northward by mid to late morning.

    A dusting- to 1-inch of sleet and snow will fall in these areas, with more like 1- to 3-inches in parts of Southern New Hampshire.

    As the storm continues to move through it will drag up warmer air over the course of the day, sending highs into the 40s for many of us, so by afternoon most spots will be seeing rain, with the exception of far Northern New Hampshire and Maine where snow will fall.

    The storm pulls away on Sunday night, dragging in very strong winds that will keep blowing right through the day on Monday. Expect gusts at times near 50 MPH, resulting in pockets of power outages or some isolated tree damage.

    The wind will also continue to produce snow in the mountains of Northern and Western New England.

    When it’s all said and done the mountains of Vermont will see 3- to 6-inches of snow, with 6- to 9-inches in parts of Northern New Hampshire and Northern Maine.

    The strong winds will also bring in much colder air by mid-week, with highs only in the 20s. We’ll watch a few disturbances next week, too, in that cold environment, but right now none of them look to be major weather makers for New England.
