No major changes to the forecast this morning… This is not going to be a blockbuster storm; however, enough wintry weather will fall to create some travel headaches this evening and tonight. Off and on light snow and rain are expected by late morning and afternoon, but with temperatures above freezing, the snow will have trouble sticking to the ground. As night falls, temperatures drop and the intensity of the snow picks up… that will change. And the combination of reduced visibility and some snow coated roads will lead to sloppy travel for the PM commute.
Most of the accumulating snow will fall between 7pm and 2am tonight… with most areas picking up around 1-3″ of snow. The amounts will be less over the Cape and Islands and coastal MA where a wintry mix/rain will continue.
The snow will taper to lingering flurries and snow showers through dawn Wednesday. Temperatures will drop to near 32 and some patchy black ice will be possible early Wednesday morning.
