BOSTON (AP) — After cold and snow that set February records, southern New England is entering March with another round that could push Boston over its 20-year-old season record.
With 102 inches, Boston needs 5.7 more to break the 1995-1996 record of 107.6.
Snowfall of 4 to 6 inches is expected by early Monday across the area, with up to 8 inches in southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Less is expected in northern Massachusetts and New York state, and on Cape Cod.
Temperatures are expected to be in the upper 20s and lower 30s, moving out of the deep freeze that hit the Northeast last month.
Elsewhere, heavy snow is expected in the Rockies, and heavy rain in the Southwest. Snow was falling from the Ohio Valley into the Northeast, with freezing rain in the Mid-Atlantic.
