(Updated) Boston could get 8 inches of snow Tuesday night
Some residents of Greater Boston may not want to hear it, but more snow is on the way.
The forecast, as of Monday afternoon, indicated that Boston could get up to 8 inches of the white stuff Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service. The snow isn’t expected to begin falling until after 1 p.m., and most of the accumulation was expected to happen during the evening and nighttime hours.
The snowfall is forecasted to end by Wednesday morning and early afternoon.
Much of Greater Boston was expected to get up to 8 inches of snow. The South Shore and Cape Cod communities were expected to get the most accumulation, which could be as much as 14 inches on some parts of the Cape.
Temperatures are expected to be extremely cold this week, with a high of 18 degrees on Tuesday and 17 degrees on Wednesday. Temperatures were not expected to rise above freezing through next Monday.
