Bitter Wind Chills Ahead of Chance for Snow Tuesday, Wednesday

Adjust Comment Print

Because roads will likely be snow covered, we will be under a Winter Weather Advisory from 6 PM until noon on Monday. We'll keep a slight chance for snow in for Tuesday/Wednesday, as its totally possible that models trend back to where they were yesterday between now and Tuesday. Additional accumulations of less than an inch are expected. New data suggests that most of the snow may already be south of the area by the commute time Monday morning.

It's also possible that the snow changes to rain in southeastern MA.

Extreme cold warnings are issued when very cold temperatures or wind chill creates an elevated risk to health such as frostbite and hypothermia.

Even when rain/sleet/snow isn't falling, a blanket of cloud cover sticks around tonight.

Then it quickly gets cold again on Monday as highs stay in the single digits.
