Drops To Flakes

It’s been quite the feat over the last week to put a big dent in the snow that we have on the ground.  Despite the puddles, and mess the snow melt creates, it is nice to see the overwhelming piles of snow start to dwindle down.  The key is to melt the snow slow and steady in order to avoid major flooding issues.  Many towns did pick up about an 1″ of rain yesterday, however, it was a manageable amount as long as we can continue the snow melt slow and steady this week without any more major precipitation events.  That looks to be the case at this point.

Although I don’t see any major precipitation events this week, we will have some rain/snow showers to track.   In fact, after a dry start this morning we’ll catch scattered rain showers developing around midday today. Those scattered rain showers change to scattered snow showers mid to late afternoon. Heading out to Southie for the parade?  Plan on noon temps in the lower 40s, falling to the mid to upper by mid afternoon with scattered rain/snow showers around.  Many towns between 3-7pm may catch a coating – 1″ of slushy snow, mainly or the grass/car tops. Although a heavier squall could briefly reduce visibility and throw down a slushy coating on the roads.

Snow showers wrap up early this evening and skies clear on out.  The rest of the forecast this week looks fairly quiet other than a few early rain showers Tuesday and perhaps a close call with a bit of snow/snow showers Friday night.  We’ll near seasonal levels Monday and Tuesday and turn quite cold for mid March by mid-week as Wednesday struggles to hit 30.  At least we’ll have the sun!

Enjoy your Sunday!
