How much snow will Boston get? – NBC Boston

I feel like we say “There will be a lot of ups and downs in the weather department this week…” a lot as meteorologists in New England.

Yes, you guessed it – another temperature roller coaster is in the cards for us.

If warmer air is your preference, then you’ll definitely enjoy the spring preview, which peaks Wednesday with highs well into the 60s for many of us (perhaps just below the record highs).

Before we get there, conditions will be calm and pleasant Monday with highs in the 50s followed by rising clouds Monday evening.

Clouds precede some rain for our Tuesday. Expect a few showers from late morning until afternoon with more regular rain from west to east in the evening and overnight.

The only problem spot in terms of wintry weather will be from north central NH to western Maine, where light freezing rain and a build up of sleet will create slippery travel.

Otherwise, precipitation totals will generally be ¼ to ¾ inch, ending before dawn on Wednesday. The cold front itself moves into Wednesday afternoon, marked by a gusty wind shift and noticeably colder air pouring into the region.

In fact, Thursday’s high temperatures will be 20 to 30 degrees cooler than the day before! The next storm is approaching Thursday evening and will start as snow before gradually transitioning to a winter mix in parts of southern New England.

That several days in advance, there are many details to settle. But it’s safe to say we can lock in the storm and expect some travel headaches on Friday – with an early estimate of 6-12 inches of snow for many of us.

The bigger question will be how far north the mixing line will move and how quickly this transition will occur.

Anyway, behind this system, the weekend looks calm and cool, with highs in the 30s.
