Another round of snow is on tap for Boston before temperatures rise later this week.
Enough snow to shovel and plow is forecast for the area on Tuesday. Enough snow will fall to slow travel and bring a new round of disruptions to daily activities.
With temperatures rising to just above freezing in the afternoon, it is possible some of the snow melts off the major roads after it is plowed and treated.
However, as temperatures fall slightly Tuesday night, roads may become slippery once again in the wake of the storm.
Winter will briefly release its grip on the Boston area for the rest of the week.
Temperatures will crack the 40-degree mark Wednesday and Thursday, then approach 50 F on Friday.
Overnight lows these days will still drop to or below freezing, so people are urged to walk and drive defensively.
With the rising temperatures will come concerns of flooding near streams, rivers and poor drainage area due to runoff from melting snow and perhaps ice jams.
Minor urban flooding could result where snow piles are covering storm drains. Some roofs loaded with melting snow could leak or fail under the shifting weight.
A storm on Friday will bring a chance of rain to New England. The same storm could bring severe weather farther south and west.
