BOSTON — The overnight starts clear, but clouds are expected to roll back into the region ahead of our next storm. There is going to be another nor’easter developing along the mid-Atlantic coastline and then riding up to the Northeast just off our shoreline.

A major snowstorm will impact Cape Cod and southeastern Massachusetts Saturday afternoon and the first half of the overnight. Near blizzard conditions are possible at times in these areas.

In Boston you can expect around 6 inches of snow with about 2 to 4 inches west toward Worcester. The snow begins around or just after noon on Saturday and moves northward into Boston and the north shore by 2 or 3 p.m.

The snow will end after midnight with a return to blustery and cold conditions for Sunday.

Friday night: Increasing clouds with lows in the mid-20s.

Saturday: Snow will develop in the early afternoon and could become heavy along the coast. Several inches will fall by the evening with less snowfall west of Route 495. Highs between 30-35 degrees.

Saturday Night: Several inches of snow will fall along the coast in the evening, and then the snow will end. It will be windy with lows in the teens or low 20s.

Sunday: Sunny and cold with highs in the 20s.

Sunday Night: Mostly clear and very cold with lows between 2 and 12 degrees.

Monday: Sunny with highs in the mid-20s.

Tuesday: Rain and snow are likely. Mostly cloudy with a high near 40 degrees.
