Forecast discussion: A frontal boundary carrying low pressure areas from eastern Louisiana to northern Maryland will continue to give Boston more precipitation Friday evening. Rain showers, however, will meet with some colder air arriving behind a cold front already offshore. The rain will change over to a mix of wet snow, and mix in with a little sleet at times. It will change over north and west of Boston to start, before slowly changing over throughout the city. However, we will return to all rain showers by mid-morning on Saturday, before all the precipitation ends. We may see a coating of snow on the cars by dawn, but should quickly melt away.

High pressure in the Northern Plains will bring some drier air Saturday afternoon, and bring partly cloudy skies by Saturday evening. However, temperatures will also get colder, as high temperatures will only reach the lower 30’s.
The high will give way to a couple areas of low pressure developing over the Ohio River Valley and the coast of North Carolina. We will see increasing clouds Sunday night, with precipitation starting in the form of snow. However, some warmer air will arrive, changing the snow to a mix of sleet and freezing rain before the morning commute. So, we will see a wintry mix during the worst time to travel to work or school. So, please take extreme caution, and give yourself more time to arrive at your destination. At this time, we may see up to a half-inch of ice on the roads before the changeover to rain.

By the middle of Monday morning, the wintry mix will convert back to rain showers, as temperatures warm into the lower 40’s. The precipitation will end by around midnight, with skies remaining cloudy Monday night.
A new high pressure system will bring drier weather for the remainder of the week. But, it will be quite cold, as daytime temperatures will be near or below freezing Wednesday and Thursday. Temperatures actually climb above freezing by Friday afternoon.
