FRESH BLANKET OF SNOW
While not a blockbuster storm, a widespread 3-6” fell with locally higher amounts reported in bands and where colder temps allowed for a fluffier snow to accumulate. More than 7" fell in parts of Essex and Middlesex counties. Boston checked in at 5.6". That's our second biggest snow storm of the season. (12.6" on January 4th takes the top spot!)
ICY SPOTS OVERNIGHT
There was a lot of melting that took place Sunday afternoon as highs reached the 40s with sunshine. It will remain mainly clear overnight as high pressure builds in. Under light winds and clear skies...temperatures will drop, so patchy black ice is possible early Monday morning on any untreated surfaces before much warmer weather moves in.
FEBRUARY VACATION WEEK WARM-UP
From weekend snow to spring-like temperatures. Highs Monday will be nearing 50 and more snow will melt. A few rain showers will move through Monday evening with a warm front, then that warm air will take hold and mean record-challenging warmth for the middle of the week. Our chance to break a record in Boston is Wednesday where the record stands at 63 set back in 1906. Cooler, but not cold, weather will return Thurs-Fri, and we'll be watching for a few showers as that front moves in.
