Two Icy Winter Storms Predicted This Week In Massachusetts

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Weather experts are watching two potential wintry storms expected to hit New England later this week. The first batch of cold, wet weather is due in Massachusetts Monday night.

According to AccuWeather, Monday will likely start out cloudy and cold across much of the Commonwealth. Periods of snow could leave a coating to an inch, mostly in northern and western parts of the state.

Later in the day, residents should expect spells of light snow, sleet, and freezing rain, which will likely change to rain in Boston and along the coast by Monday night, AccuWeather said.

As WBZ-TV's Jacob Wycoff reports, although snow is not a major concern, ice accretion from Monday's storm could lead to travel disruptions and power outages.

"The main storm looks to arrive late Monday morning into Tuesday, finally wrapping up by Tuesday afternoon," Wycoff said. "This storm has the potential to bring heavy snow, ice, rain and coastal concerns."

Weather experts are also tracking a second wintry storm for the week, which could impact New England late Thursday.

Wycoff said the second storm, which is predicted to start with snow Thursday night and transition into rain Friday, could be worst for residents in western Massachusetts.
