Snowfall: February 7-9, 2015

final
Scattered flurries and areas of light snow are expected through Sunday, but a steadier and heavier snow develops after midnight. The heaviest snow is likely across Massachusetts with lighter precipitation to the south and west.

Snow will continue, light to moderate at times, through most of Monday, tapering off from west to east. Some snow showers may continue into Tuesday morning across eastern Massachusetts.

A general 4 to 8 inch snowfall (additional snowfall beginning at noon Sunday) is forecast for northern Connecticut and much of the interior Northeast. 8 to 12 inches can be expected across the eastern slopes of the Berkshires and from Worcester and points east. A band of heavy snow, near the Boston metropolitan area, will most likely drop over 12″ of snow in some areas. Further south, less snow is expected as precipitation amounts will be lighter and some mixed precipitation will limit snowfall.

Some patchy light freezing rain and ice pellets will be possible across New Jersey, the New York City metropolitan area, Long Island, the lower Hudson Valley and southwestern Connecticut. This may make for a slippery commute during the morning rush hour on Monday.
