There will be no rest for snow-weary Southern New Englanders on Tuesday. Another quick-hitting weather system will bring accumulating snow inland, and a close call between snow and rain near the coast. Snow will develop by midday, and it may be heavy at times in the afternoon. The wind will be out of the southeast, and that unfavorable wind for snow may lead to a change to rain near the coast, and especially on Cape Cod and the islands. New Bedford and Fall River should both see at least a couple of hours of steady snow in the afternoon before any mixing with or changing to rain. The evening commute may be slowed by the precipitation which is likely to last until at least 7 p.m. in Eastern Mass. It will move out during the evening.
