Snow storm, freezing temps to hit Boston area

A mix of snow, wind, and cold temperatures is likely to hit the Boston area Monday night, according to the National Weather Service.

The coldest overnight temperatures in two years are predicted to follow the storm, which is predicted to drop between 2 and 4 inches of snow between 4 p.m. Monday afternoon and noon Tuesday.

It will be accompanied by winds between 10 and 20 miles per hour and temperatures in the low 20s, making for a potentially hairy Tuesday morning commute.

The weather service declared a winter storm warning for the far northeast part of the state as well as Plymouth County and the Cape and islands, warning of 4 to 8 inches of snow combined with winds between 15 to 25 miles per hour and temperatures also in the low 20s.

The storm is currently tracking southeast over the ocean and “is set to explode,” sending bands of heavy snow across the water and into primarily coastal regions tonight and into Tuesday, helped by the “homogenous cold” across the state, according to meteorologists.
