Tuesday evening wave of snow, rain before more impactful storm arrives

Another round of rain and snow is on tap for Tuesday evening before a more impactful storm moves in later this week. This all comes after a stretch of mild weather that brought record warmth to the region.

Some rain and snow pushed across the state for the morning commute, leaving roads wet for drivers, but not snow-covered. That wave of precipitation tapered off by late morning, but more wintry weather is on the way.

A quick-hitting system will move in for the tail end of the evening commute and persist until about 11 p.m., bringing showers and a mix of light snow. The best chance for snow accumulation will be on roads at higher elevations, mostly on grass and untreated roads.

Wednesday will be quiet, marking the calm before the next disturbance. The bigger storm threat is on Thursday, but Meteorologist Kevin Lemanowicz says the latest models are trending milder for Thursday. “Less snow but still a mess.”

Wednesday night’s snowfall will quickly turn to sleet, freezing rain, and just rain overnight into Thursday and making for icy travel conditions throughout the day Thursday.

Two to 4 inches of snow is expected for most of the Bay State with less in southeast Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island, where it will be mainly rain or a touch of freezing rain.

New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine will see mostly snowfall, with the possibility for 8 or more inches.
