Here’s what local meteorologists are saying about the snow forecast for Monday


Though life could appear to be it’s at a standstill with the COVID-19 outbreak, spring in New England remains to be, effectively, spring in New England, and a few areas may see snow Monday.

“Say it ain’t #snow,” reads a tweet from the National Weather Service Saturday. If it’s any comfort, the service notes that Boston is roughly 25 inches beneath common for snowfall this season.

“We have a couple of chances to add to the snow next week, mainly across the interior,” the service stated. “How much? Stay tuned!”

Say it ain’t #snow! We all know snow has been laborious to return by. #DYK we’re averaging ~25″ below at BOS, ~20″ beneath at PVD, ~11″ below at BDL, & ~23″ beneath at ORH? We have a few probabilities so as to add to the snow subsequent week, primarily throughout the inside. How a lot? Stay tuned! 😎

The snow is forecast to return as a part of a nor’easter, the service stated in a tweet earlier Saturday. 

“The best chance for impactful snow is across interior southern New England, especially the Worcester Hills and slopes of the Berkshires,” in accordance with the service.

Boston seems to be at a low likelihood of seeing greater than four inches of snow in 24 hours because of the storm, a map from the service reveals. However, there may very well be greater than six inches of snow within the mountains.

A coastal storm will convey the possibility for accumulating snowfall late Monday into early Tuesday morning. The greatest likelihood for impactful snow is throughout inside southern New England, particularly the Worcester Hills and slopes of the Berkshires.

The information wasn’t welcome for some.

“You are really making me sad during this time of social distancing,” Twitter person Sarah Lee Mancini Jr. replied to the service.

Here’s what different native meteorologists stated about Monday’s forecast:

Eric Fisher, WBZ and CBS News: ‘Still unsure as to whether any will accumulate Monday PM in the city, but right now would say no.’

A look at March snow over the previous a number of years in Boston. Still uncertain as as to whether any will accumulate Monday PM within the metropolis, however proper now would say no. Better likelihood away from the coast. #wbz

After having a quiet February, March is being bipolar. There’s a chance for accumulating snow for areas north and west of Boston Monday afternoon/night, we will have to monitor a developing storm to our south. As of now, the higher terrain could get up to 7″. @NBC10Boston
