Brief coating before a flip

Boston 25 News Saturday afternoon weather

UNSETTLED WEEKEND

Points north and west of Boston may become slippery with a coating of snow, up to 1″ in the northern Worcester Hills, the Berkshires, and southern New Hampshire. As mild air moves into the region, we’ll see a change to all plain rain by lunchtime - washing away any sticking snow from earlier in the day.

Rain and fog will peak Saturday afternoon. Wet weather will taper off west to east 3-6pm. We will keep an eye on the evening in case fog lingers a bit longer.
