There won’t be a lot of it, but forecasters are warning that snowfall Monday night could cause some headaches for commuters Tuesday morning.
“Not a blockbuster winter storm but expect some snow and wind tonight including minor coastal flooding Tuesday morning along [the] eastern Massachusetts coast,” The National Weather Service said Monday.
The snowfall is slated to arrive late Monday, potentially affecting the evening commute, and linger into Tuesday, according to the service, which has issued a winter weather advisory for the Cape, Islands and southern Plymouth county.
Service forecasters said coastal Plymouth county, Cape Cod, and the Islands will see the greatest snowfall totals from the coastal storm.
Boston will likely see snow starting after 5 p.m. Monday and continuing overnight into Tuesday morning, according to the city’s seven-day forecast. The city may only get one to two inches of accumulation.
Here’s how much accumulation local meteorologists are forecasting for the region:
