BOSTON (CBS) – While Tom Brady celebrated his 7th Super Bowl victory in Florida, Massachusetts looked like the Snow Bowl again! The 6 to 10 inch range was seen in many places, and some crept up on one foot by Sunday evening.
Just as we have finished shoveling and cleaning up this round, another shot of snow awaits us on Tuesday.

Here’s a look at the timing and implications:
Overcast sky rolls in overnight. The flakes will likely start around 8 a.m. in Worcester County. If they head east, those along Interstate 495 should see the snow around 10 a.m., with the coastal areas kicking off the activity by noon.
The snow will fall evenly for most of the afternoon. At 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. the moderate snow will subside, but we’ll still have a few showers until midnight. Quieter until Wednesday morning ride.

Most will take 2-5 inches. The highest totals are likely to fall in some indoor areas along and near the Mass Pike and higher elevations of Worcester County.
The lowest scores are near south Bristol and Plymouth Counties, as well as Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, and Nantucket. Coating to within two inches seems most likely in these spots as temperatures rise above freezing and some mixing can occur.
The main concern is the travel times in the afternoon and especially the evening shuttle service. With the leftover snow from the Sunday event and the additional buildup from this lap, road conditions will deteriorate after Tuesday lunchtime.
In a similar light, the weight of snow from the weekend system with Tuesday totals could plummet turns and / or power lines. Failures cannot be ruled out.
If this is not enough for you, the snow conveyor belt will continue for the rest of the 7 day forecast.
