The weather service said the snow and blowing snow may make travel hard, with areas of reduced visibility.
Temperatures Saturday in Boston will rise to the 40s with plenty of sunshine, a "rather comfortable afternoon given our recent stretch of unseasonably cold weather", according to the National Weather Service. The report said the snow may cause slippery roads and could make driving hard.
Saturday: Patchy freezing drizzle before 7 a.m., then snow.
In those areas, the National Weather Service says three to five inches of new snow are possible, with wind gusts up to 35 miles per hour. Some will also end up in the snow as it acts like a sponge, but it can only hold so much.
Most of the morning commute will be dry, but through the commute snow chances along and west of I-81 will start to increase.
This will be very heavy, wet, slushy, nearly concrete-style snow, unlike what we saw in February.
The National Weather Service warned the heavy wet snow could be unsafe in other ways, too, bringing down tree limbs and power lines. Temperatures warm up to the mid 60s Sunday, Ledbetter said.
WARMER MORE SEASONABLE WEEKEND
The forecast Friday in Brainerd-before the storm-is a high near 28 degrees, with a south wind of 5-10 miles per hour.
Snow conditions are not expected to reach the east or south of the country.
Sunday's forecast high is 29, but it is expected to be blustery.
Yup, Boston is going to get more snow.
But "a band of cloud and rain will soon make headway eastwards, possibly with snow over some northern hills".
"Saturday night will be cold and breezy with wintry showers, mainly of rain, hail and sleet, but turning increasingly to snow overnight, especially in Ulster and on high ground". It's too early to tell.
