Up to 8 inches is forecasted for Monday night and Tuesday.
Spring officially begins Wednesday, but Old Man Winter seems to have planned at least one more whack before letting warmer weather in. Forecasters predict as much as 8 inches of snow could fall on Needham, starting tonight into Tuesday. The National Weather Service (NWS) issued a Winter Storm Warning beginning at 9 p.m. Monday and lasting through 11 a.m. on Tuesday. Look out for heavy snow and ice, and between 4 and 8 inches of snow, according the NWS warning. Snow will likely make Tuesday morning's commute a difficult one, the NWS warns. WHDH Channel 7 meteorologist Jeremy Reiner predicts that snow will begin falling between 11 p.m. Monday and 1 a.m Tuesday.

The forecast calls for mostly wet snow and little accumulation in suburbs west of Boston.
Another big storm will hit the Boston area on Wednesday and Thursday, but it looks like it will be mostly rain in Eastern Massachusetts. The storm will hit Wednesday morning and last through Thursday, according to the National Weather Service forecast for Needham, but little accumulation is expected here. WHDH TV meteorologist Jeremy Reiner writes in his blog: Time to start talking about a big storm heading this way. It's the same storm that will pound the Midwest-Mid Atlantic today & tomorrow. This storm will pass close enough to New England to make it a player in our world. Still a lot of details to work out but here's what I'm thinking: *Drawn out storm....late Wednesday night right through midday Friday. The height of the storm will …

Forecasters say we could get 8-12 inches of snow.
Once again, the snow is melting. But once again, don't put the shovels away: the weekend could bring more snow. A new snowstorm is headed our way for Saturday and Sunday, forecasters say, and Needham could see up to 12 inches of new snow before it's done. On his blog, WHDH meteorologist Pete Bouchard is calling for light rain along the coast Saturday with snow inland and snow across the region by Sunday morning. "Heavy snow through early morning Sunday. Roads will be tough to travel, and yes, your flight will most likely be delayed or cancelled. (Although I don't run an airline, so I'll let them have the final word.)," Bouchard writes. As of now, forecasts call for 8 to 12 inches of new snow in the towns west of Rte. 128.

The Mass. Pike and I-495 may see plowable snow on Monday.
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 …
