A band of light snow will move through the area from east to west Monday morning. Most areas will see under 2 inches of accumulation. With temperatures right at 32 degrees, I'm not expecting accumulations on the main roadways, but some of the back and side roads could become slick during this morning's commute.
Tuesday, there is a break in the action. For March, the weather appears quite pleasant. We'll see partly to mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the low 40s, which is average for this time of year.
Another nor'easter is on the way for Wednesday and Thursday. It’s likely parts of New England will see significant accumulations. Most of our forecast models are on board with a large nor'easter, but the exact track is to be determined.
In-depth news coverage of the Greater Boston Area.
A track closer to the coast will keep the heaviest snow over the interior, a track farther offshore would mean major snow for the Interstate 95 corridor and all of the major cities.
Thankfully, we aren’t expecting any major coastal flooding, but there could be some nuisance flooding in the areas which were hardest hit. High winds are also likely at the coast. Regardless of whether we see rain or snow, there is a lot of precipitation with this next system.
We will need to monitor some of the local rivers, which are running high.
