Sunday’s light snow flurries may continue through Monday morning

After a brief reprieve on Saturday, more snow arrived in Massachusetts Sunday — and residents may be waking up to more on Monday morning.

Flurries began rolling over the state Sunday afternoon with a “good chunk” of Eastern Massachusetts seeing snow, weather service meteorologist Torry Gaucher said. Gaucher said the weather service had received reports of flurries in Boston and areas west of the city.

Unlike Friday’s snow, there will likely be far less accumulation — with the highest totals expected to be around 2 inches in parts of the Berkshires.

“Generally it’s still about an inch of snow in the metro west areas of Boston,” Gaucher said.

Throughout the state, the snow will likely come “primarily overnight into the first part of tomorrow,” Gaucher said.

There is also a chance the area will be spared of snow Monday morning, as the weather service reported Sunday night that they’re “dealing with a low confidence forecast.”

“[There’s] high uncertainty in the forecast tonight and Monday,” forecasters wrote in an update at 6:45 p.m. “Could potentially have some impacts to the AM commute due to accumulating snowfall or could see not much of anything.”

On Sunday, temperatures remained low with a high of 39 and winds topping out at 8 miles per hour.

The biggest impact of the system would be the potential for some light freezing drizzle during the Monday commute, between 4 a.m. and 9 a.m., in the Metro West, North Shore, and Merrimack Valley areas of the state, weather service meteorologist Andrew Loconto said.

And there “could be some travel difficulties” as a result of roads not yet being treated for wintery conditions, he said.

Temperatures should rise slightly during the week — with highs reaching near 50 degrees. The forecast does not call for any more snow but there is a chance of showers on Thursday ahead of a cold front that could bring blustery conditions to the area Friday and into the weekend, forecasters said. .
