A weak, fast-moving storm will bring a period of snow (and rain) to Boston, southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island from this afternoon into Wednesday morning.
Most areas south and east of Boston will receive an inch or snow or less from the storm with virtually no snowfall north and west of Boston.
The snow and rain will be intermittent most of the time over much of Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
Later Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, the hills south of Boston to perhaps Cape Cod and Rhode Island have a shot at picking up a little more snow, if the storm manages to gain a bit of strength, before heading out to sea.
This is not the type of storm that will bring strong winds and downed trees and power lines.
