This much seems certain: we will see snow next week.
But how much and how often is still the big question.
According to WHDH meteorologist Jeremy Reiner, the weather pattern for the area will start to become active not just for next week, but for possibly the next three weeks.
"The pattern becomes active and a number of storms will take a swipe at us for the next 2-3 weeks," according to his blog on WHDH. "They won't all be snow or rain, likely a mix of both and the first one on the docket looks to be just that."
In regards to next week, Reiner says light snow is expected Sunday and may change over to sprinkles Sunday night.
Monday will see the light mix of precipitation become steadier & heavier by afternoon & evening. The coast can expect rain, with snow farther inland.
"Some plowing of the snow appears likely right now — along I-495 and north of the [Mass.] Pike [is the] greatest risk of plowable snow," Reiner says.
Another storm on Wednesday is also possible.
