Like McKayla Maroney with her arms crossed, the forecast models are unimpressed with this weak storm giving us a glancing blow Tuesday afternoon and Tuesday night. We'll get a bit of light snow and flurry activity, mostly south of the Pike, but not much accumulation. Although a few spots in RI and interior Southeast Mass could collect an inch of snow, there shouldn't be too many headaches out there. Along the coastline of Southeast Mass and through Buzzards Bay, the Cape and the Islands, an onshore component to the wind keeps the temps closer to the surface warm enough for rain drops to mix in.
The main theme as we go through the week will continue to be the colder than average weather pattern settling, and remaining in place into next weekend. It'll be a dry forecast Wednesday - Friday, with perhaps a few ocean-effect snow showers across the Cape on Friday, and a possible batch of snow or snow showers ahead of a warm front on Saturday.
