National Weather Service

Thought you were seeing things this morning?

Don’t worry, your eyes weren’t playing tricks. It really did snow.

Flurries were seen moving through the region early Friday, the National Weather Service said.

“It’s definitely an unusual sight this time of year,” said Kim Buttrick, a weather service meteorologist.

The white flakes were spotted in Boston around 5 a.m., she said, and they are expected to continue moving across Northeastern Massachusetts through the late morning.

“After this, though, we’re looking at mainly dry conditions over the next few days,” Buttrick said.

Temperatures Friday are expected to crest in the low 50s, with winds gusting to 25 miles per hour making it feel cooler, forecasters said. Nighttime lows will drop to the low 30s.


Sunshine will warm highs into the mid-50s Saturday, before lows fall to the upper 30s.

Temperatures will continue to inch slightly upwards Sunday, with highs in the upper 50s and lows in the low 40s. Scattered showers might pass through the region in the afternoon, forecasters said.

The chance for showers will continue Monday, as temperatures reach highs in the low 50s and lows in the low 40s.

Tuesday will be cloudy with highs in the mid-50s and lows in the low 40s, forecasters said.

Wednesday will bring a hint of spring, Buttrick said, with plenty of sunshine and highs climbing into the low 60s. Nighttime lows will fall to the mid-40s.
