Forecast For 5 to 8 Inches of Snow for Framingham, MetroWest


We'll get into the mid-40s Thursday and Friday before a chance for another wintry mix on Saturday. The day will see mostly cloudy skies and cold temperatures, with highs topping out around 37 degrees. That will be especially true for paved surfaces treated with salt/brine.

A winter storm watch is in effect from Tuesday afternoon until Wednesday evening.

About 3 to 5 inches of snow is possible for the Reading and Allentown areas.

The weather service also uploaded maps showing the percentage chance of how much snowfall each area will get.

A winter weather advisory is possible, forecasters said.

Widespread power outages are possible, and travel could be hard at times.

The only good news is that depending on the eventual track of the storm, the area could see less snow.

Not only did the signing make headlines because of the destination, but also because Sherman himself negotiated the deal, himself. After the 49ers made it official on Sunday, Seahawks faithful set the four-time Pro Bowler's jerseys on fire .

Until the overnight model runs, previous forecasts had kept the storm well offshore.

Precipitation is possible throughout the day on Wednesday. "Any mesoscale convective snow bands will be capable of pushing snowfall rates over 1-2" per hour.

Now it appears that rain and snow will remain the story most if not all of this next week.

Latest forecast for Tuesday's and Wednesday's nor'easters, as of Monday evening. "We're going to have to flip the calendar into April". Still very much up in the air. Northeast wind 10 to 15 miles per hour.

There are two systems making their way toward the northeast, but only one will pack a real punch. Tides in Boston are forecast around 10.5 feet, Brink said. Guidance is within an inch or two of Major flood stage. As stated above this low tonight and most of Tuesday stays to the south for the most part, thus keeping the bulk of the precipitation to the south as well, but that does not mean we will be dry tomorrow though.

Then on Tuesday night is when the real action begins.

The National Weather Service is concerned that the combination of heavy snow and strong winds could snap tree limbs and power lines, triggering more power outages in areas that were hit hard by outages during the previous March coastal storms. Still plenty of time to watch how this evolves, so check back in with us over the next couple of days for updates.
