    Tuesday Night Snow for Boston

    A weak, fast-moving storm will bring a period of snow (and rain) to much of Massachusetts into early Wednesday.

    Most areas from Boston down along the coast to Cape Cod and the Islands will receive an inch of snow or less with rain mitigating the accumulation. Accumulations north of Boston into southern New Hampshire should also be less than an inch, due to dry air concerns.

    However, since the storm will get its second wind Tuesday night, the snow will enhance for a few hours in parts of southern New England away from the warming effect of the ocean.

    There will be higher amounts across the hills to the south of Boston, and west, where 1-3 inches of snow is likely.

    Most of the time the snow and rain will be intermittent. The precipitation will gradually end from west to east Wednesday morning as the storm pulls away.

    Roads were mostly wet during the day Tuesday, but will turn slushy and slippery in spots from Tuesday evening through Wednesday morning.

    Despite some strengthening Tuesday night, this is not the type of storm that will bring strong winds and downed trees and power lines.
