A snow day literally and figuratively falls from the sky, unbidden, and seems like a thing of wonder. -- Susan Orlean

Big Flake Snows

As you can see from the map below, there's lots of snow activity around us. The band to our west will hit us tonight and could give us a quick inch. The snow flakes will be large, thus allowing the snow to accumulate very quickly. But the snow will be light and powdery and can be whisked away without any trouble.

The 9:30 PM radar for Tuesday night
Most New England drivers should be able to handle this light snow, so we don't think there will be any delays tomorrow. We'll leave 10% on the True North Confidence Meter, but that's just to cover our backside in case there is a random delay.

It's really hard to predict how much snow we'll get over the next 36 hours. We could see an inch tonight, an inch or two during the day on Wednesday, and another inch or two overnight Wednesday. Five inches sounds good, but not if it's spread over a 36-hour period.

Good luck. Maybe we'll get surprised Wednesday or Thursday morning.
