A cold, damp day with light snow and light rain mixed in didn't make it the most pleasant day to be out and about. The theme tonight won't change all that much either with rain and snow, transitioning to mainly snow in the City of Boston. As winds turn north this evening, cooler air drains in, and that's where temps slide to near freezing and snow starts to stick a bit to the roads and sidewalks.
I don't expect a lot of snow with this storm, more of a nuisance. Many locations in Metrowest, Worcester County, Merrimack Valley, North Shore, pick up a coating to a half inch, mostly of grassy surfaces. Along route 1 from Norwood to Foxoboro to Attleboro, we'll see a bit of a steadier snow the evening, giving us about an inch of snow. South of there, Brockton to Easton to Bridgewater, I think 1-2" ought to do it, and perhaps locally seeing as much as 2-3" around Taunton, Rehoboth, Lakeville. For more on this, see the "special map" on our web site. These totals will be highest on grassy surfaces and car tops, less on the driveways and sidewalks.
A few lingering flurries and snow showers are around tomorrow morning, otherwise clouds and some sun and continued cool.
Cool weather rules for a few more days, but by the 2nd half of the weekend and early next week, we likely take a run back toward 50!
