Forecasters are warning the timing of an approaching snowstorm may make Monday afternoon and evening commute slippery.
There may be an inch of snow on the ground on Monday evening during the evening commute, according to forecasters at WHDH-TV. "Don't expect a ton of snow, but a general 1-3" falls late Monday afternoon, through the evening, producing slick roads, perhaps in time for the ride home from work," writes meterologist Chris Lambert in his blog. Even though not much snow will fall, Lambert said that the snow "will create slick spots on the roads Monday evening and Monday night." The National Weather Service forecasts that the snow will start between 3-5 p.m. in Stoneham. The precipitation will change over to sleet later in the evening mixed with freezing drizzle. Based on the forecast, the weather service has issued a winter weather advisory that …

Expect mostly rain in the city and snow outside of 495.
A nor'easter will kick up winds and rain in the region Wednesday, with sleet and snow likely west of Boston and in the higher elevations. According to WHDH meteorologist Chris Lambert, the precipitation should start between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m., which would impact the afternoon commute. Atmospheric conditions may convert falling rain into snow in Boston, though that would mean merely a dusting on grass before quickly melting away. The actual rain/snow line is harder to predict. "I don't expect much, if any accumulation in the Boston area, maybe a slushy coating around Rte. 128 on grassy surfaces as rain and snow battle it out for a few hours in the early evening," wrote Lambert on the 7 Weather Blog. "The snow will lose that battle to rain, …

Deep snowpack means colder ground temperatures, potential for more ice accumulation.
There's shouldn't be too much snow—for once—but the weather on Saturday night will be none too pleasant. The National Weather Service (NWS) issued a winter weather advisory for northeast Massachusetts on Saturday morning, in effect until 10 p.m. this evening, for a wintry mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain. Only up to an inch of snow should accumulate on the ground and rooftops, the advisory said, but will be followed by "several hours" of freezing rain. "A light wintry mix of precipitation will overspread the region early this afternoon with steadier precipitation late this afternoon into early this evening," the NWS said. The temperature should hang around the lower 30s, but the ground will actually be colder "given the deep snowpack…

Snow and freezing rain are in the forecast and may present problems for area commuters.
A wintry mix is expected to hit the Stoneham area Tuesday morning and continue into the late afternoon, according to a winter weather advisory issued by the National Weather Service. The advisory, which runs between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m., warns of "snow and possibly a brief period of sleet or freezing rain." Snow is expected to start between 7-10 a.m. before turning into rain in the late afternoon, and there may be intermittent bouts of freezing rain or sleet to contend with, according to the advisory. Due to the heavy rain in the forecast, there is a possibility of street flooding and drainage issues cropping up. By the end of the storm, there may be an additional two to four inches of snow accumulation. Commuters need to be cautious …
