BOSTON – Welcome to spring! He the spring equinox has arrived Tuesday night, making Wednesday the first day of astronomical spring! And, now that spring has officially arrived, we can continue with more winter weather – with rain and maybe a little snow in the forecast for Massachusetts.

March has been full of red days so far (warmer than normal). Now, just as planned, we are about to balance the scales a little with a blue rope (below normal days).

Cold front moves through Massachusetts Wednesday night

First things first, a cold front will move through the area Wednesday night, bringing some rain showers and perhaps some graupel showers or snow as well.

The real story comes with the air mass behind that front. Thursday will probably be the coldest day of the entire month!

Highs will stay in the 30s and winds will make it feel like 10 to 20 degrees for most of the day.

Friday morning will be quite cold with lows of 10 degrees in many of the suburbs.

Rain and snow from Saturday’s storm in New England

Going back to the weekend, the news doesn’t get much better…

Another “reinforced” storm is headed to New England.

Come early Saturday morning, the atmosphere may be cold enough for light sleet or snow in parts of northern Mass.

In a few hours, the wintry mix will change to all rain in southern New England.

The rains will continue, at times intense, throughout Saturday.

Models are currently suggesting rainfall totals between 1 and 3″ for most of our area. This would lead to further localized flooding.

Sunday is a bit iffy. There are questions about how long the clouds and rain will be able to remain in the area. More to come on that part of the forecast.

Snow forecast for New England ski resorts

In the north, in the ski area, it will fall like snow! We are projecting a foot or more for a good portion of the White Mountains.

The ski season is about to get a late boost!
