Though life may seem like it’s at a standstill with the COVID-19 outbreak, spring in New England is still, well, spring in New England, and some areas could see snow Monday.

“Say it ain’t #snow,” reads a tweet from the National Weather Service Saturday. If it’s any consolation, the service notes that Boston is roughly 25 inches below average for snowfall this season.

“We have a couple of chances to add to the snow next week, mainly across the interior,” the service said. “How much? Stay tuned!”

The snow is forecast to come as part of a nor’easter, the service said in a tweet earlier Saturday. 


“The best chance for impactful snow is across interior southern New England, especially the Worcester Hills and slopes of the Berkshires,” according to the service.

Boston appears to be at a low chance of seeing more than 4 inches of snow in 24 hours due to the storm, a map from the service shows. However, there could be more than six inches of snow in the mountains.

The news wasn’t welcome for some.

“You are really making me sad during this time of social distancing,” Twitter user Sarah Lee Mancini Jr. replied to the service.

Here’s what other local meteorologists said about Monday’s forecast:

Zack Green, WBZ: ‘Bottom line as of now is interior locations likely see snow in inches while coastal spots remain in a rain event.’

Eric Fisher, WBZ and CBS News: ‘Still unsure as to whether any will accumulate Monday PM in the city, but right now would say no.’

Denise Isaac, NBC10 Boston: ‘As of now, the higher terrain could get up to 7″‘

Kelly Ann Cicalese, WCVB: ‘Rain & snow potential Monday PM, with accumulating snowfall likely N & W.’
