This coastal low will bring the most rain for parts of the South Shore, Cape & the Islands. That will be the best chance to see 1″ of rain or more.
This same area will have the gusty winds between 5-10 AM — associated with the coastal storm.
A quick burst of snow is possible early Wednesday morning, giving some areas the chance to accumulate a slushy coating on grassy areas.
The 2″ is on the higher end and is for higher elevations (over 1,000 ft).
Expect wet roads for the Wednesday morning commute. Showers start shortly after midnight, with steady rain across the area at 2 AM.

Boston could also get a quick burst of snow, but we will only see it falling from the sky. It doesn’t look like it will stick- even on grassy areas.
Roads should stay wet and minor accumulation expected.
