Warmth Departing, Snow Incoming?

Lots to talk about, but I am going to wait until early this afternoon before posting about snow possibilities - likely Tuesday night into Wednesday.  I hope you enjoyed the springtime warmth too.  As I am typing this just before 9AM, it is 54 degrees outside. It may be a while before we see a morning this warm again.
5PM UPDATE - Everything seems to be coming together for plowable snows for much of SNE tomorrow night and early Wednesday morning.  This will not be a blockbuster, but some spots could pick up a few inches that would make the Wednesday morning commute a bit of a headache.  All of the computer models are hitting the Mass Pike corridor for heaviest precipitation, but the question remains what type will it be?  The European model is the coldest and the American GFS was the warmest at noon, pushing the rain/snow line up to the Pike, including Boston and the immediate coast.

I think those away from the immediate coast and away from the south coast, Cape, and islands will likely stay mostly snow with this one.  I am working on a snow map now, but waiting for the GFS to come out over the next hour before putting numbers up.  I am feeling a general few inches for most of the area.  Nothing we can't handle.  Still, it will be a shock to the system after many towns soared into the low 60s this afternoon.

Next update with the snowfall accumulation map (first call) around 6PM.
