    After the first blizzard of 2018, this incoming snow won’t hold a candle to that storm. We’re expecting a moderate snowfall, generally under 6 inches.

    Although it won’t be a lot of snow, it could have BIG impacts on the roads. Winter storm warnings and advisories have been issued around the region.

    This isn’t a rapidly developing Nor’easter. It will be a coast storm, but it’s developed too late and too far east for us to see a blockbuster snow storm.

    This weak low pressure system will pass directly over the elbow of Cape Cod. If you live in extreme southeastern Massachusetts, that will mean mainly rain for you.

    The timing isn’t great. Snow will begin around 4 a.m.

    A heavy burst of snow could move through between 5 a.m. and 8 a.m.

    After 8 a.m., most of the precipitation will wrap up. The storm will clear out during the afternoon, and the sunshine could return before sunset.

    There is no cold air behind this storm system. In fact, eastern parts of the Commonwealth will climb above freezing on Wednesday.

    Temperatures will continue to warm through the 40s and into the 50s by the weekend.

    After Wednesday, there aren’t any storms on the horizon until the following week. Even then, temperatures will be high enough for mainly rain.

    Sunday looks sunny for the AFC Championship game at Gillette Stadium. The only question will be: how warm will it be?

    Two of our forecast models are showing two different solutions.

    One of the models shows a big high over Bermuda, which would be mild and sunny.

    The other model shows a high to the east of New England, which would mean cool and sunny weather.
