Monday Storm Between Minor Event And Non-Event

BOSTON (CBS) — The storm track for Sunday night and Monday continues to look well to our south…far enough south to put this storm somewhere between a minor event and a non-event.

Light snow or flurries will be scattered about New England on Sunday (morning and afternoon) thanks to a cold front coming from the north. This isn’t really associated with the storm that we have been tracking, however it will have a hand in pushing it farther away from New England. I wouldn’t be surprised if the ground was coated with snow in many areas on Sunday from this cold front.

After dark, the snow may become a bit steadier to the South of Boston as the storm from the Midwest tries to push northward. Ultimately it will be blocked from coming up here in any major way, but some light accumulating snow may occur overnight Sunday into very early Monday morning. Best chance of this would be along the South Coast, Cape Cod and the Islands, but even there, I wouldn’t expect much more than 1-3 inches.

There may be as much as in inch or so as far north as Boston and nearby suburbs. North and west of Boston, many of you will be completely shut out of snow, or perhaps just get an additional coating here and there.

So that’s a wrap on this one…more wintry weather this week though, highs will be stuck below freezing through at least Thursday with several nights near or below zero in the ‘burbs. Just a few flurries on Wednesday and then we will watch a coastal storm for later in the week, early indications would be for a fringe or near miss but still too early to make a call.
