Easter brought with it some interesting weather.

Another series of spring storms was expected to arrive Wednesday.

Friday will be partly sunny with a high of 52 and a low of 41 and a 40 percent chance of snow showers.

Boston is only expected to get 1 to 2 inches total, with that snow most likely melting as the day warns up in the afternoon.

Today: Rain and snow likely before 3 p.m., then a slight chance of snow. Accumulations of 6 to 9 inches are possible in this area. Wednesday night's low is likely to dip into the upper 20s, the weather service said. Wind was kicking up on Sunday and that ushered in colder air from Canada, which is why it's snowing and not raining. There is a chance a wintry mix may redevelop Monday morning before a chance of showers and thunderstorms Monday night. Those mild high temperatures Wednesday may actually occur early in the day because the aforementioned cold front will track through by lunchtime with colder air quickly building in behind the front during the afternoon.

Tuesday Afternoon: Any wintry mix should turn to all rain as we warm to 40° across southeastern MI. Some minor accumulations are possible on area roadways.

Marshall Public Works Director Glenn Olson said city street crews were also watching the forecasts on Monday to determine when to go to work.

"Tuesday's 15-20 miles per hour northwest wind will continue into Tuesday night", Temeyer said. "In terms of snow there could be travel problems on some Pennine routes and higher ground".

Temperatures will be much below normal for this time of year, with highs in the teens and twenties and feels like temperatures in the single digits and below zero.

NWS meteorologist Kris Sanders says with this round of weather, it is unlikely we will see any accumulation. A lot of locations will start out with rain or a wintry mix that will then transition to a wet snow.

After 1-3 inches of snow fell Monday afternoon and evening, snow will re-develop late Monday night and into Tuesday morning, dropping another 1-3 inches by 6 a.m.

Four to eight inches of snow is expected in the Twin Cities, and six to 10 inches down around Rochester.
