so if you have travel plans to the south, into northern massachusetts, a better shot of steady light snow developing during the afternoon. then heavier snow once you get into connecticut, rhode island and southeastern portions of massachusetts where they could see well over four, five, six, even seven inches of snow. best bet of a very light accumulation, manchester south and southeast later tomorrow afternoon into early tomorrow evening. later tomorrow night the skies will clear, a breeze will kick up at times and temperatures remain seasonably chilly. two feet plus, in and around portions of virginia, west virginia, maryland and southern parts of central pennsylvania. to the north the numbers will decrease, but still a hefty snowfall in portions of southern new york and southern parts of connecticut. once you get into new england not a whole lot of snow in northern new england, but to the south two to four, northern parts of massachusetts cannot be ruled out. and as we just get brushed with that northern edge later tomorrow and tomorrow night, especially manchester south and
