    Boston: Weekend to Remain Wintry, Cold

    Snow, cold and potential travel problems are in the offing for Boston this weekend.

    The latest Alberta Clipper storm will visit the region this weekend. Combined with the wind and episodes of snow, RealFeel® temperatures will dip below zero at times.

    While temperatures will get close to the freezing mark for a few hours on Saturday, the brief temperature spike will come at a price.

    After a dose of light snow Saturday midday, locally heavy snow squalls will roll through during the afternoon and evening, marking the return of cold air.

    The squalls and gusty winds can bring sudden low visibility. There can be a few inches of snow and enough snow can fall to make for slippery travel.

    After temperatures plunge into the teens Saturday night, the high on Sunday is forecast to be in only the lower 20s.

    While temperatures may again briefly spike on Monday as another clipper storm passes through the Northeast with areas of snow and flurries, the coldest air of the winter may follow during the middle of next week.

    A shift in the weather pattern starting later next week could allow some storms to track up from the Gulf of Mexico to along the Atlantic Seaboard. The pattern moving forward into February could yield opportunities for some significant snowstorms.
