A couple of winter storms are expected to come to town this week, one Sunday night into Monday and and another Wednesday night into Thursday.

After a sunny, relatively mild day in Boston Saturday, with a high temperature of about 40 degrees, clouds are expected to increase throughout the day on Sunday, according to the National Weather Service.

From a high temperature near 34 degrees, a chance for snow begins Sunday night as temperatures fall to near 27 degrees overnight, forecasters said. Though no accumulation is expected overnight, snow could continue to fall throughout the day, said Kim Buttrick, a meteorologist at the weather service.

The bulk of snow is expected from 9 to 11 a.m. Monday with less than half and inch accumulating, according to the weather service.

A second storm will likely bring a mix of rain and snow Wednesday night and Thursday, according to forecasters. No accumulation is expected.

Like other recent winter storms, both systems are coming from the southwest, in contrast to the nor’easters that are more common this time of year, according to Buttrick.

“It’s almost like we’re getting skirmishes rather big blockbusters,” she said. “The snow lovers among us don’t like these storms.”

Dry days are expected Tuesday, most of Wednesday, and Friday, according to the weather service. High temperatures are expected to stay in the 30s with overnight lows in the teens and 20s.
