Arctic Air Heads For Mass.

Wet, heavy snow fell throughout Boston Tuesday morning. Much of the state saw 1 to 3 inches of snow, with rain mixing in on the South Shore and Cape Cod.

WCVB-TV meteorologist David Brown said frigid air is now on its way.

"An arctic front is going to come plowing through during afternoon hours," Brown said. "With that we can see some snow squalls, again not a lot of snow, but brief periods of near whiteout conditions."

Most of the state will see temperatures fall into the single digits Tuesday night.

Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency spokesman Peter Judge says he's not concerned about roads freezing, but says the agency will keep tabs nonetheless.

"I mean it's something we're gonna have to watch obviously, but hopefully today is just gonna be a, you know, winter in New England type of inconvenient day," he said."

More than 60 schools were delayed or closed Tuesday, several over concerns regarding weakened roofs.

State emergency management officials said several roofs collapsed Tuesday morning, bringing the total to 154 in the past week. No serious injuries were reported.
