A flood warning was issued Saturday morning through 12:15 p.m. for Norfolk, Suffolk, Plymouth, and Bristol counties, as well as parts of Essex and Middlesex counties.
1"-2" of liquid precipitation expected with a few slushy inches of accumulation possible in the hills.
Rain and snow may mix for a time across eastern MA, including Boston on Saturday and could lead to some issues if it falls heavily.
Snow will have a hard time accumulating on the roads, with most accumulation occurring overnight Friday. Dry and quiet weather will continue across the Plains before stormy weather returns by the weekend. We have the chance for accumulating snow in northern CT, with some wintry mix and rain for the rest of CT. A colder storm would bring heavier snow to the coast, while a warmer solution would push the heavier snow farther inland and over higher elevations. Highs today will only be in the 30's to low 40's and winds won't be very strong, only around 10-20 miles per hour at most. Between 6 and 14 inches of snow is expected on the Palmer Divide.
This storm will deliver a good 1"-1.5" of much-needed precipitation by Saturday afternoon. "It's still looking pretty snowy for us". It's important to note: A difference of a degree or two from the ground to the clouds would mean the difference between rain, freezing rain, sleet, and snow.
Across the West, a storm will bring rain and snow to the central Rockies. Crews are ready to clear the slush and the snow Saturday morning, which should make for clear roads by mid-morning, he said.
Rain will change back to snow from north to south before tapering off Saturday afternoon.
KKTV will be running special weather coverage between 8 and 9 a.m., Roehler said.
Early forecasts predict another round of snow moving in Monday, though chances remain below 30 percent.
