Joe’s Weather Blog Fast hitting snow early Sunday

Afternoon highs will reach the low 40s for everyone.

"Another 0.5" to 1.0" of rain is likely early Tuesday morning, and then it's drier again for Wednesday and Thursday.

The main event comes Monday evening.

Monday's forecast calls for a chance of more freezing rain before 4 p.m. followed by a "wintry mix" of rain, snow and sleet that could affect the area until Tuesday afternoon, the weather service said.

Heavy showers continue into Monday and will last throughout the day as well. Snow will move in from the southwest late Monday night to northeast Pennsylvania and central NY. Then another storm system will move over Mid-Michigan.

Tuesday: Snow. Moderate snow accumulation. The possibility of rain before temperatures go below freezing means pre-treating roads would be ineffective, since salt would be washed away. Depending on how quickly we can climb back above the freezing mark, that will depict how much ice we can see. Warmer air will surge into the region late Tuesday. Any ice accumulation is unsafe and will create an absolute nightmare on the roads. There will be periods of heavy snow between 2-6 PM, with freezing rain in Boston and south after 8 PM. This is the scenario we fear may be possible by Tuesday.
