NWS: Forecast for Tonight's Storm Plus What's Ahead

Varied accumulations forecast across Cape Cod...

We get a short breather today, with some sunshine warming daytime temperatures to around 40. Take advantage of the sunshine, because clouds will fill back in during the afternoon.

A winter storm moves out of the Gulf of Mexico and then up the coast tonight. This will spread snow into Southern New England, roughly 6-8 PM in the west and 8-10 PM in the east. Several inches of snow are expected from this storm. Snow will taper off roughly 4-9 AM Monday.
