    Colder weather for Boston this week will lead to episodes of snow.

    Indications are that winter will be in no hurry to leave. Waves of arctic air and the polar vortex sinking southward will make for a cold end to February and start to March.

    Wednesday through Saturday, temperatures will then struggle to reach the freezing mark. A high close to 42 F is more common in Boston this time of year.

    Brisk winds will create even lower AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures.

    A couple of fast-moving storms could bring a coating to an inch or so of snow and travel delays on both Wednesday and Thursday. Another system could bring spotty snow on Saturday.
