Weekend storm bringing inches of rain into Massachusetts, snow for others. Here’s what to expect
It might be springtime, but this weekend isn’t looking very spring-like.

A messy storm will bring inches of rain into Massachusetts which will start off as snow and ice for others.

A brief coating of snow is possible in the Boston area before 7 a.m. on Saturday when precipitation is set to transition to steady rain. Snowy and icy conditions will continue in central and northern MA through late morning or midday, Boston 25 Meteorologist Tucker Antico shared in his latest weather blog.

Ice will also be a factor in messy weather this weekend.

“Unlike snow, it only takes a little bit of ice to significantly deteriorate road conditions. If you live in an area where icy conditions are possible, like the Worcester Hills and southern New Hampshire, you really need to be cautious Saturday morning”,” Antico says.

Antico says that rain is set to peak around 7 p.m. on Saturday and will continue through the night.

A flood watch has been issued for Central Middlesex, Western Essex, Eastern Essex, Western Hampden, Eastern Hampden, Southern Worcester, Western Norfolk, Southeast Middlesex, Suffolk, Eastern Norfolk, Northern Bristol, Western Plymouth, Eastern Plymouth, Southern Bristol, Southern Plymouth, Barnstable, Dukes, and Nantucket county until 8 a.m. on Sunday.

“We’ve had our fair share of soaking rain events, but Saturday’s will be particularly impactful. Unlike the others, all of the rainfall will occur during the day, and roadside flooding is possible everywhere with a broad 2-3″ expected,” Antico said.

A winter weather advisory has been issued for Western Franklin, Eastern Franklin, Northern Worcester, Western Hampshire, Western Hampden, Eastern Hampshire, Eastern Hampden, and Northwest Middlesex County until 12 p.m. on Saturday.

Northern New England gets all snow and the green and white mountains are expected to get 12 to 18 inches of fresh powder.

The storm is expected to pull out of Massachusetts by Sunday morning and it will be windy all day.
