Boston Metro North covers the North Shore, Merrimack Valley and Northwest Suberbs:
Update: Temperatures have warmed up to the mid and upper 30’s throughout the North Shore, including interior sections, so the threat for icing on the North Shore is over. Temperatures will slowly climb this afterrnoon, with highs into the 40’s by later in the afternoon.
Precipitation is holding off but do expect showers to overspread our area late afternoon and continue into tonight.

5 Day Outlook: Monday and Friday look to bring us inclement weather. In between the weather should be fairly tranquil, temperatures running above normal through at least mid-week.
Low pressure moves through the Great Lakes Monday and into southern Canada Tuesday. The system drags a warm front north of our region during Monday. The trailing cold front will push through here very early on Tuesday morning….Precipitation ahead of the approaching system could arrive during Monday mornings commute. With overnight temperatures well below freezing, any precipitation that arrives will be of the frozen variety, especially inland….As temperatures warm during Monday the frozen precipitation will change to rain, first on and near the coastline during the morning, mid-day or later well inland. There is also a chance the precipitation does not arrive until later morning, meaning there would be very little frozen precipitation, perhaps only inland Merrimack Valley locations.
We are thinking mostly light precipitation during the morning hours, with light freezing drizzle or light freezing rain, changing to drizzle/rain. A snow flurry could be mixed in as well. Later in the day and into Monday night periods of rain or showers will persist, until the cold front arrives after midnight and clears out the inclement weather for Tuesday.
High pressures controls the weather into Thursday, before the next storm system makes its approach later Thursday night. Confidence is low on what happens into Friday, but the thinking now is light snow inland, rain or snow near the coast. This can change and of course we will keep a close watch for updated information on any late week storm!
