Light, fluffy snow on rooftops can act as a sponge for rain, which is in the forecast for Monday. The Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency offers these tips.
With rain in Burlington forecast for Monday, the Blizzard of '13 may not be finished wreaking havoc in Massachusetts. While temperatures dropped overnight on Friday resulting in light, fluffy snow, he Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) warns that fluffy snow piled high on roofs can act as a sponge, absorbing rain and adding additional stress to structures. Relatively flat roofs are particularly vulnerable, MEMA says. In other cases, roof ice dams have formed causing water build-up, leading to interior damage. These conditions can accelerate the snowmelt. To minimize the risk of over-stressing a building roof due to accumulated or drifting snow: Information from a release by the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA…

There will be several storms moving across the area all week that are expected to all bring rain to the Burlington area.
The light coating of white we saw on the ground Sunday afternoon is likely all the snow we’ll see as part of several storms that will move across Burlington this week, according to the National Weather Service. The greatest chance of snow will come to the northwest of the two towns. On Monday night into Tuesday, the next storm will bring “mainly rain” to the area, the weather service said. Then on Tuesday night into Wednesday northwest winds could really pick up. Winds during that time could prompt a wind advisory, the weather service said. And finally, on Thursday night into Friday, another storm will again “probably bring mainly rain” with a greater chance of snow to start the storm for inland areas.

Expect mostly rain the area and snow outside of 495.
A nor'easter will kick up winds and rain in the region today, with sleet and snow likely west of Boston and in the higher elevations. According to WHDH meteorologist Chris Lambert, the precipitation should start between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m., which would impact the afternoon commute. Atmospheric conditions may convert falling rain into snow in the area, though that would mean merely a dusting on grass before quickly melting away. The actual rain/snow line is harder to predict. "I don't expect much, if any accumulation in the Boston area, maybe a slushy coating around Rte. 128 on grassy surfaces as rain and snow battle it out for a few hours in the early evening," wrote Lambert on the 7 Weather Blog. "The snow will lose that battle to rain, …

As much as 4 inches of rain could fall Sunday night into Monday.
Mother Nature, it seems, will try to make up for the extremely dry start to the year with "torrential rain" starting Sunday evening and continuing into Monday. At 6 p.m. Saturday, The Boston Channel was predicting that the rain will begin in the Burlington area around 2 p.m. Sunday and continue with the heaviest rainfall through Monday morning. And the rain forecast has led the National Weather Service to issue a flood watch for Wayland and much of Southern New England. According to the flood watch, heavy rainfall to the tune of 2 to 4 inches is expected to fall Sunday night into Monday. While flooding of major rivers is unlikely, small streams and areas with poor drainage have prompted the watch. A flood watch means that there is …
