Winter storms in March!

Last night was a particularly exciting storm for New England. A nor’easter blew up from the coast, leaving many coastal cities buried beneath several inches of snow. We may continue to experience some light precipitation this afternoon and into tomorrow as the back side of the storm drifts across the region. After a couple drier and slightly warmer days this weekend, another low pressure system is expected to move through on Monday. It’s unlikely to bring us a snow day, but expect to see rain and/or wet snow early next week.

Wet snow and rain storms such as these are not uncommon in the month of March in Boston. Low pressure systems blowing in from the south are often frequent this time of year. Compared to earlier in the winter, warmer temperatures generally bring in rain or wet, heavy snow. If you’re a fan of warm and dry weather, you may want to consider going elsewhere for spring break.
