A wintry mix begins the week, with the return of rain on Thursday and Friday


Southeast New England can expect light snow and rain Sunday and Monday, then a few dry days mid-week.

Next week’s forecast calls for a mix of snow and rain in eastern Massachusetts on Sunday and Monday, with between one and three inches of snow accumulation possible in some areas.

Coastal areas are more likely to see snow accumulation, with mostly rain and sleet inland through Monday. Things will dry out mid-week, with most of the state getting seasonally cold temperatures in the 30s and 40s through Friday when there is a slight warming and more rain. The only chance of sunshine in the next few days comes Wednesday.

What meteorologists say about bad weather

Local forecasters are watching for an offshore ocean storm that will bring precipitation early this week to eastern New England.

“Light mixed precipitation this morning will give way to a cloudy and windy Saturday. We turn our attention to Sunday when a long spell (36 hours) of light snow will produce up to 3″ of snow across SE MA. More amounts Localized highs are possible, so we will continue to monitor trends,” tweeted the Boston office of the National Weather Service (NWS).

“Our next event is already underway…as the snow/mixture/rain turns to snow all sun and continues to turn off and on until Monday. Most see until 1″ , but some walk away with as much as 4″. Almost impossible to pinpoint, as the storm wobbles and the bands could settle anywhere. Patterns don’t help,” tweeted Pete Bouchard, meteorologist at NBC Boston.

“Another batch of precipitation begins Sunday morning and is expected to produce snow for the Eastern Mass. The snow will struggle to stick at first, but should eventually amount to a 1-3″ accumulation over parts of the SE Mass” , tweeted WCVB meteorologist AJ Burnett.

“Pretty disgusting weekend, pretty disgusting stretch. Very little sunshine in prospect…except maybe Wednesday. Balancing all those blue skies in 2022,” tweeted WBZ Chief Meteorologist Eric Fisher.
