Greater Boston faces a Sunday of rain and snow


Globe Correspondent and Globe Staff

Clocks may have taken the lead for spring, but Sunday's weather seems to have eased slightly.

The snow began to fall in Boston shortly before 9 am with the arrival of a late winter storm that promised mainly rain at the approach of a warmer week.

According to the National Meteorological Service, the mix of snow and slush before 11 am is expected to give way to slush and rain until 2 pm, when rain will resume in the evening. The high temperature will probably increase to around 40 degrees.

The National Weather Service has issued a weather advisory for central and western Massachusetts and warned that the Berkshire Hills and surrounding areas of Fitchburg and Worcester could receive up to 3 inches of snow on Sunday.

Forecasters believe that Boston should not be more than an inch.

The persistence of snow, rain and sleet should make road conditions slippery and dangerous, forecasters said.

Warm temperatures – and dry conditions – are likely throughout the work week. High temperatures are expected near 47 degrees Monday 39, Tuesday 41, Wednesday 50 and Thursday, and Friday at 57 degrees, according to the weather service.

The nights will probably be cold, however, with most depressions plummeting below freezing, forecasters said.

Friday should be the only day without much sun and it will probably rain in the evening.
