New England Gets Rain, Snow Sunday Into Monday


BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — We may be creeping closer to the month of May, but winter is not done yet.

New England is expecting a rainy week ahead. That includes lowering temperatures, strong winds, and heavy rainfall starting Sunday afternoon into Monday, and snow expected in some northern and western parts of the region.

Areas Massachusetts are predicted to get one to two inches of rain with northeasterly wind speeds predicted up to 30 mph along the Cape and South Shore on Sunday afternoon.

According WBZ-TV meteorologist David Epstein, temperatures are expected to drop into the 30's overnight Sunday as the rain continues to roll in from the southwest.

By Monday morning, temperatures are expected to stay in the 40's with some light rainfall, but Epstein says it'll feel a lot colder due to increased winds of up to 40 mph in Boston and the North shore. In the highest sections of northern New England, there could be up to six inches of snow on Monday.

The National Weather Service said 2-4 inches of rain is expected along much of the east coast over the coming week, with a possible dry spell on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Keep up with the latest New England weather and say farewell to a local icon by tuning in to WBZ-TV on Sunday night for Barry Burbank's final broadcast as Channel 4's nightly meteorologist.
