Scattered snow showers are expected this evening which may be in the form of rain at the onset. The steady snow is generally expected to fall between midnight and 6 am and over by 7 or 8 am Monday. Snow accumulations of a coating to 2 inches are possible...but localized 3 inch amounts are possible across southeast Massachusetts onto the upper Cape. Given temperatures near freezing many roadways will be wet or perhaps a bit slushy with the bulk of the accumulations on grassy surfaces. Nonetheless...if the snow comes down hard enough roadways could become briefly snow covered and slippery impacting the first part of the morning commute. Any snow that is able to accumulate on the roadways will melt by mid morning.
