Mixed bag of rain with heavy snow inland – NBC Boston

There is a very complex storm bearing down on us delivering a mixed amount of rain to the area. Similar to what we see early or late in the winter, there will be a wide range in snowfall totals from the coast to the highlands inland.

The path of the storm is not the problem, we would normally expect to see widespread snowfall with the path it will take… the problem is the lack of cold air over New England to support that. With temperatures in the mid-30s across much of southern New England, it will be difficult to see snow accumulation, except inland and across higher elevations.

A mix of rain and snow is expected to be seen along the coast, mostly snow inland and central New England this afternoon as low pressure moves away from the mid-Atlantic coast. Yes, we will see a few bursts of snow near the coast as the precipitation becomes heavier, helping to pull cold air upwards, but adhesion of that snow will be an issue, maybe a little on non-asphalt surfaces.

Low pressure will intensify south of New England last night letting in a bit of cold air, which will help change the mixed precipitation to all snow during the overnight hours, and this is when the coast will see snow accumulation.

This will likely impact Monday morning commuting, and we are expected to see some delays and school closures. The snow will end during the morning inland, but will continue a bit during the afternoon across the Eastern Bloc and the Cape where we could see some moderate to heavy bursts.

The big prize for snow will be across the high elevations from Worcester County to New Hampshire, as well as the Berkshires to the mountains of southern Vermont where we will likely see 6-8 inches+ of snow.

Near the coast, we will see lower amounts in the range of 2-3 inches around the Boston area. Keep in mind that a few degrees plus or minus will be all it takes to make a difference in the final snow total amounts. We will definitely be watching that closely!

Winds along the coast will also increase from the north-east this evening into Monday morning with gusts along the coast of around 30mph and 40mph across the Cape and Islands. We'll get a little cooler on Tuesday with highs in the upper 20s, a little milder by midweek and on the calm side.

Have a great Sunday!
