Don’t put away the shovels and ice-scrapers just yet, because winter may start to look like, well, winter a little later this week.
The National Weather Service says snow is likely this Wednesday and Thursday in Lexington and much of eastern New England.
According to the NWS’s detailed seven-day forecast, the white stuff could begin to fall late Wednesday morning, when there is a 50 percent chance of precipitation. The chance of precipitation is expected to increases as temperatures fall Wednesday night and into Thursday, March 1, the Service says.
Local forecasters are also looking toward the midweek storm, but say it’s too early to weigh in on possible accumulation.
The storm, expected to roll in mid- to late-afternoon Wednesday, Feb. 29, could deliver snowfall north of Boston and a wintry mix to the south of the city, Storm Team 5 meteorologist JC Monahan said this morning on TheBostonChannel.com.
“Warmer air looks to wrap in from the south changing any snow to a mix south of Boston,” Monahan said on WCBV Boston's site. “”It’s too early to forecast snow amounts, but there is a chance for accumulation, especially in northern Massachusetts.”
