In the wake of the recent storm with its rain, ice and snow over New England, a cold Christmas Day is shaping up for Boston.

The cold weather will add to the hardship for those without power from southern Ontario to northern New England in the wake of the ice storm.

A few flurries will fly across Boston Tuesday evening as a disturbance passes through. Heavier snow showers will occur closer to New York City.

A snow shower will linger on the Cape late Tuesday night and Wednesday. Christmas Day will otherwise be the brightest and coldest day of the week with highs only in the middle 20s, despite sunshine.

Wednesday's dry weather will give way to a bit of snow on Thursday, which will accumulate a fresh coating to an inch.
