Snow begins the week: A winter storm warning has been issued as parts of Massachusetts could see half a foot of snow


A winter storm warning has been issued for Massachusetts, where parts of the state could see half a foot of snow to start the week.

North Berkshire, West Franklin, West Hampshire, North Worcester and Northwest Middlesex County are all in a warm winter storm.

South Berkshire, Western Hampden, East Franklin, Central Middlesex County, South Worcester, West Essex, East Essex, Southeast Middlesex, West Norfolk, East Hampden County and East Hampshire are under a winter weather warning, according to National Weather Service.

There will be smooth travel on the roads on Sunday as well as Monday with snow and rain.

“We will see much of this mix turn into just regular snow through Sunday night, when I expect the most snow to accumulate across parts of eastern Massachusetts,” meteorologist Vicki Graf said in her report. Sunday morning forecast.

“The inland highlands will see the most snow, with numbers decreasing near the coast where we will have more of the mix,” Graf said.

Graf expects six to eight inches of snow at higher elevations.

“This is a complex storm system because in order to get snow you need cold temperatures below freezing from the surface all the way up and unless you have that cold column of air, you’re going to get more of that mix and that’s what I would expect here in Boston,” Graf said.

“Gusty winds are set to peak Sunday night and Monday morning, with gusts of up to 50 mph on the Outer Cape, up to 40 mph along the coast, and 30 mph inland,” Graf said.

“Between the strong winds and the heavy, wet snow, we will monitor for any power outages, and make sure devices are charged before the storm. The snow will subside during the morning commute on Monday between 6 and 8 a.m.

The storm will move in Monday afternoon and the rest of the week looks clear.
