...A coating to 2 inches of snow expected overnight with localized
3 inch amounts possible across southeast MA mainly on grassy
surfaces...

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.
