Winter Weather Returns In What Is Hopefully Last Gasp

Skip to main content

BOSTON — One of the biggest mistakes we New Englanders make is expecting March to be nice or April to be warm. It makes the relentless wind and stubborn cold all the more disappointing.

But there is reason for optimism once we get past Saturday’s winter weather.

Rain will start overnight Friday into Saturday and turn into snow in the morning. It’ll be messy, but the total accumulation across Central and Eastern Massachusetts isn’t expected to be more than an inch. Several inches are expected in the western part of the state.

The biggest threat Saturday will be strong winds, which will be see 40-60 miles-per-hour gusts Saturday night into Sunday. The National Weather Service called a hazardous weather outlook due to the potentially dangerous winds, “which could result in minor wind damage such as some downed branches or wires.”

After a cold Sunday, high temperatures early next week rebound to the low 50s. Later in the week they’ll get to the low 60s. And even low temperatures aren’t forecast to hit anywhere near freezing in at least the next two weeks, perhaps indicating Saturday’s storm is winter’s last real gasp.
