Unsettled Wintery Weather Week Ahead

We have had a very wintery week this week. We had a nice 2-6" snow/sleet storm Sunday into Monday and today we had a surprise 0.5" to 1" of snow across the area. Tomorrow will be the one "mild" day with temperatures actually getting back to normal. That is why it is snowing tonight. This snow is actually the warm air riding over the cold air, producing some snowfall. A cold front will move through tomorrow and we will be back in the cold on Sunday with a package of moisture coming at us from the Ohio Valley. Snow will develop from west to east during the afternoon and evening and reach the coastline, Boston, by dinnertime. The snow will likely falling light to moderately overnight and may mix with some sleet/ice/rain from Boston south and east. Accumulations will be light, won't go into figures, but a couple inches are not out of the question. We will see a lull in the precipitation on Monday night through most of Tuesday before another batch of wintery mess moves through the area on Tuesday night. Too early to see what type of precipitation it will be. We warm up a tad on Wednesday, mid and upper 30's, perhaps 40's on the Cape. Clouds will thicken Thursday with colder air to setup the next storm Friday. A crazy week is ahead of us...there will be many delays and cancellations next week. Lots of work will be getting done.
