You didn’t really think you’d just mosey on into spring without incident, right?

A winter storm warning will remain in affect for Boston until 11 a.m. Monday, after which conditions are expected to quickly improve, according to the National Weather Service. Boston is expected to receive between four and six inches of wet snow altogether, creating hazardous road conditions for the morning commute, but clearing up by the afternoon.

Boston Public Schools closed Monday, and while the city didn’t issue a parking ban, it did ask residents to keep the roads as clear as possible for the nearly 400 trucks clearing the roads overnight.

With any luck, spring, which officially started Sunday, will be back on track by Tuesday, with the NWS expecting sun and a high near 46 degrees.
