Sunshine Makes An Appearance

Welcome back to school, Massachusetts, and ‘Hello’ school vacation week, New Hampshire!
Skies will be cloudy this morning followed by peeks of sun this afternoon. Highs will be around 40.
Tuesday will also be a pleasant day with a sunny start and a cloudy finish. Highs will be in the lower 40′s.
Tuesday night, after midnight, a rain and snow mix will develop. We will need to keep a watchful eye on this frontal boundary.
While I believe that nearly everyone will switch over to rain on Wednesday morning, there is that chance that heavy, wet snow will continue to fall much of the day for the higher elevations of central Mass. as well as points north to southern NH.
If this rings true, there could be several inches of snow (3-to-6 inches) in areas like Fitchburg, Leominster, Keene, Jaffrey, etc. This precipitation shield would move out of the area Wednesday evening.
Additionally, there is a chance of a rain-snow shower in the forecast for Thursday and Friday. Highs will remain in the 40′s.
Overall, this will turn out to be a rather seasonable end to the month of February and the beginning of March (Friday).
