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.

In regards to next week, Reiner says light snow is expected Sunday and may change over to sprinkles Sunday night.

Town could see 3-5 inches of snow and a mix of rain and sleet starting Wednesday afternoon and into Thursday morning
Hope you didn't put away that shovel just yet.
