The storm is expected to roll into the region starting around noon Tuesday, with snow on its leading edge.

Environment Canada's special weather statement was upgraded to a winter storm watch Sunday afternoon.

Snow was expected to push into the Puget Sound area later Sunday afternoon and continue into the early overnight hours, the weather service said.

The National Weather Service says the track of the storm could shift, but at this point, forecasters are saying anywhere from 6 to 12-inches of snow is possible in the areas included in the winter storm watch.

IMPACTS: Travel will again be hard and even hazardous starting overnight tonight and likely through Tuesday.

The precipitation is expected to start in Boston around 3 p.m. Tuesday and end at roughly 5 a.m. Wednesday.

Strong and gusty easterly winds may cause low visibility in blowing snow before the snow changes over to freezing precipitation.

The sun came out Sunday afternoon, but snow returned in the evening across the Northwest, bringing 1 to 4 new inches (2.5 to 10 centimeters).

Storms have delivered more snow to Seattle in the first days of February than it usually gets in a year, The Seattle Times reported.

Temperatures in Boston on Wednesday may linger in the 40s until sundown, and as a result, the city could see a slushy commute as fallen snow and ice melt.

Freezing rain warnings may be issued as the system draws closer. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for the entire state for a period of snow, followed by a change to wintry mix and rain.
