Smaller snowstorm on the way; up to 4 inches expected in Southeastern Mass.

Maybe this winter thing is for real, after all.

As Massachusetts continues to recover from the Blizzard of 2013, more snow is on the way, the National Weather Service says.

Fortunately, this storm will be a far cry from the mammoth storm that dropped slightly more than 30 inches on some areas of Massachusetts on Friday and Saturday.


After temperatures climb into the 40s this afternoon, they’ll drop to the mid-20s to lower 30s tonight, forecasters say. Wednesday will be partly sunny and a little cooler. Temperatures will be in the mid-30s to lower 40s.

Skies will cloud up Wednesday night as a quick-moving coastal storm passes by, dropping the most snow south of the Massachusetts TurnpIke.

Another coastal storm may arrive on the weekend, and unseasonably cold weather will mark the beginning of next week, the forecasters said.
