We’re tracking rain arriving this afternoon in the Boston area. Initially it may be cool enough aloft for brief snow or mixed precipitation. Towns and cities north and west of I-495 may pick up some grassy coatings, especially at elevations of 1,000′-2000′ and north of RT 2. Minor snow, sleet and ice in the afternoon in those spots will transition to rain in the evening at temperatures continue to rise. Showers will turn more scattered and taper off overnight. Totals will land in the .20-40″ range.
Wind will peak this evening with gusts 30-40mph along the coast and remain quite gusty into Sunday. We’re not expecting any wind damage.
The forecast is dry and bright Sunday with increasing sunshine. It will be much warmer, too. Highs will reach the mid 50s, but with those breezy winds you may still want the cap and windbreaker.
