Snow comes and goes this week

A series of relatively weak storms will skirt the Boston area this week, creating brief chances for light snowfall at various times. The first of these chances will come this morning, as a low pressure system passing to our south may spread some light flurries through southern New England. Next, another weak low will pass to our north overnight, bringing light snow or rain showers to the area through tomorrow afternoon. Finally, another weak disturbance will bring the chance of light snow or rain showers during the day on Friday.

Throughout this period, temperatures will remain slightly below normal, with highs usually hovering around the freezing mark. Our next chance for a larger storm will come at the beginning of next week, although by that time it will likely be too warm for any precipitation to fall as snow.
