4 To 8 Inches Of Snow Is Expected Sunday Night Into Early Monday Morning: An area of low pressure is forecast to track from the southeastern United States Sunday to near Nantucket by Monday morning. This storm system will lead to a 4 to 8 inch snowfall across Western & Central Mass Sunday night into early Monday morning.
Snow will overspread Western and Central Mass early Sunday evening with snow then expected all night Sunday night. The snow will come to an end first across Western Mass between 5 and 7 am Monday morning and then end across Central Mass between 7 and 9 am Monday morning.
The heaviest snow accumulations likely will occur between midnight Sunday night and 5 am Monday morning with snowfall rates of around 1 inch per hour expected at times.
Snowfall totals are expected to range from 4 to 6 inches from the upper Pioneer Valley and northern Worcester County into the Berkshires to 6 to 8 inches from the lower Pioneer Valley into southern Worcester County. It appears that the heaviest snow accumulations of upwards of 8 to maybe as much as 10 inches will occur from eastern Connecticut and parts of Rhode Island to areas along and inside of Route 128.
With that said, there are still some uncertainties regarding the exact track and where exactly the heaviest snow bands will set up. This means that the snowfall forecast map may still need to be “fine tuned” - so, keep checking back.
