Snow possible Sunday with sun on Christmas

  • Mild but wet day for last minute holiday showers

Snow flurries or light snow showers are possible late Saturday night into Sunday morning, ending by noon Sunday with a dusting possible. The snow will then expand eastward towards Boston and the coastline into the lunch hour.

The rain ends on Saturday, with colder air moving in as the day wears on.

Generally, 1 to 2 inches of snow is expected along the Massachusetts Turnpike, and less than 1 inch south of the Pike.

That warm air will have a hard time making progress, however.

Saturday Night: Mostly clear, with a low around 39.

Pittsburgh's Action Weather forecast: With snow on the way, it looks like a white Christmas is possible

On Friday, one of the year's busiest travel days ahead of Christmas and New Year's, Berkshire motorists are likely to encounter a dicey, potentially treacherous brew of snow, sleet and freezing rain. That will create very slippery travel.

Global BC meteorologist Mark Madryga says with cold conditions this Friday and Saturday, there is a high chance that snow on the ground in most of the Lower Mainland will hold for at least Christmas Eve.

Preliminary snowfall projections indicate that up to 3-6 inches of snow could fall by Friday evening across northern MA along the New Hampshire and Vermont borders, with snowfall amounts falling off to the south and east. Rain could fall close to sea level.

This first storm will finally wrap up and depart Saturday night. Highs will be in the 30s to near 40. However, in Berkshire County, Franklin County, and northern Hampden and Worcester counties, ice accumulations of a quarter to half an inch are possible. This looks to be a fast mover, so most of the impacts would be during the morning before seeing afternoon improvements. The exact track will be key in determining both what type of precipitation falls, and how much falls. Aside from storms, a broadening blast of cold air will be a major factor in the weather during the week of Christmas.

Much colder air entering the middle of the nation during the weekend prior to Christmas will be just the start of a frigid weather pattern for many.
