BOSTON (CBS) – A short burst of snow overnight has led to steady rain Thursday morning.

CHECK: School Closings, Delays

TIMING:

That rain will come to an end by late morning, transitioning to rain showers by the afternoon and tapering in the evening.

SNOW AND SLEET AMOUNTS:

A coating to an inch in areas near the Mass Pike and 5-10 miles on either side including Boston and Worcester.

1 to 3″ north and west of I-495 and Rt 2.

3 to 6″ in parts of the Berkshires, Green and Whites and as far south as Manchester, N.H.

So, in the end, another minor snow event, with the primary impact during Thursday morning’s commute. Whatever does remain on the ground after Thursday’s rain will stick around for a few days.

Much colder air pours in behind the system Thursday night and Friday (again eerily familiar to what occurred last week).

Highs on Friday (Valentine’s Day) and Saturday will be in the 20s to near 30 and one of the coldest mornings of the season is likely on Saturday with lows in the single digits.
