    Snow continued to melt today as high temperatures climbed into the 40s. As temperatures drop overnight, there will be some concerns with black ice – use caution on the roads.

    Sunday will be colder than Saturday as clouds start to move in during the afternoon. A batch of light snow, sleet and rain will move in Sunday night.

    Minor accumulations are possible, especially north of the Pike and away from the coast. The last remaining precipitation will move out in time for the Monday morning commute.

    Another system will move in Tuesday. This system will also be weak with light precipitation. Light snow will be possible, this time north of Route 2. We’re expecting this clipper to exit by Tuesday night.
