Potential Snowfall Tonight: Much Of MA Will Have 3" Up To 5"… A Narrow Strip Over CT, RH & Southeastern MA Will Be The 5" Up To A Few 6-7" Totals… Less On Cape Cod Due To Rain… Tough Call There. #wbz pic.twitter.com/ryrhusB6t1

SNOW: here's the map I've been airing on @NBC10Boston, in case you missed it. A rather pasty snow, mixing with rain for the Cape and Islands. Really nothing more than a speed bump in an otherwise mild pattern. pic.twitter.com/TF1eh940EX
