The beat goes on: lots of snow in Northern New England, with hardly anything farther south.
This morning dawned with a coating of snow around Greater Boston, but that’s it. For the rest of the day, skies will be mostly cloudy with just a few spotty rain showers. Highs reach around 40 thanks to a southerly wind.
In Northern New England, steady morning snow will taper off, with just light rain and snow showers from time to time for the rest of the day.

Our next round of precipitation arrives later Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. With temperatures still in the 30s to around 40 overnight, however, this will fall as rain in most spots other than the mountains.
After the reasonably mild start Wednesday, colder air will wrap in over the course of the day. That means rain will likely transition to snow for more locations in Northern New England over the course of the day. Farther south, from Worcester to Boston, there may be a spot rain or snow shower but skies will actually partially clear.
The mountain snow will even persist into Thursday, while farther south we enjoy cool sunshine on Thursday.

When it’s all said and done, areas in the Green and White Mountains, along with parts of Northern Maine, will pick up close to 12 inches of snow.
Much colder air arrives for all Friday into the weekend, with highs only around 20 and lows starting off in the single digits above and below zero.
The next storm to watch is a coastal storm forming Sunday into Monday. Right now the trend would be to keep most of this offshore and away from New England, but since it’s several days away it needs to be monitored.
