How much will it snow tonight? – NBC Boston


A cold morning turns into a cool day. There is less wind, but the sun will not be there for the duration.

Already our storm is heading for New England. We will become overcast before the sun sets, but precipitation will hold off until we approach midnight.

When will it snow?

Most winter precipitation – although limited – falls during the night. And it has very sparse coverage in the Worcester Hills and southern New Hampshire. With the cold (for dear life) continuing into the wee hours of Wednesday morning, some places could see a half-inch snow cover before turning to ice and then rain. Elsewhere, it is a cold rain.

Slippery roads possible for some

Later in the afternoon the temperatures warm up – significantly on the Cape/islands where the 60’s kick in! Expect 40s and 50s everywhere else. Despite the rapid change and warm-up, there can still be slick side roads in Greater Worcester until 4-5am Wednesday, so allow extra travel time in this area.

We will see the rain turn to fog and drizzle in the afternoon then watch the clearing move in later Wednesday night. Be careful though, as the winds turn, the cold returns overnight and Thursday morning.

Snow day predictor

Will any schools decide to delay or cancel school on Wednesday? We won’t know for sure until later today on Tuesday or maybe even Wednesday morning. But you can check out all the latest school closures on’s School Closures page.

Are more storms to come?

The rest of the predictions are fairly muted. We stay cold, dodge another storm (offshore) on Sunday, then see a slow moderation next week…until Thanksgiving. Luckily, no impending storm threat for travel day Wednesday either.

Stay warm!
