Wind chills as low as -20 degrees this morning and a 4° low temp made it officially the coldest yet this season in Boston. It’s going to be another cold night ahead with more single digit lows. Sunday is looking slightly better with sunshine and highs in the upper 20s along with light winds. It’s the pick of the holiday weekend.
Low pressure is expected to approach from the south and take an inland track late Sunday night. Snow is likely initially, but will quickly change over to rain along the coast. Outside of 495 we have the potential for several inches of snow, but it will change over to a messy, slushy mix with rain for the second part of the day. In the higher elevations across the interior is where we are expecting the most snow. In fact, we could see up to a foot of snow for some in the Berkshires and the Green Mountains! A WINTER STORM WATCH has been issued outside of 495 for the threat of the heavy snow. If you have travel plans across New England for the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, make sure to take it slow on the roads as they will be slippery. Wind will also be a concern with gusts 50-60 mph, especially along the coast. We are also watching the for potential for coastal flooding with the high tides Monday morning. Check in with us throughout weekend as we fine tune the forecast!
