While Boston could end up with about 2 inches of snow, Cape Cod and the islands are getting hit with a northeaster that could leave up to 12 inches, officials said.
Topping it off are flight delays at Logan International Airport, where there are one-hour, 16 minute delays on arriving flights, according to the Federal Aviation Administration's website.
About an inch of snow fell on the Hub this morning, according to Alan Dunham of the National Weather Service in Taunton. Snow is expected to fall on and off through the night in Boston, with only about an inch accumulating, before it turns to rain tomorrow morning, Dunham said.
Communities across the Cape have accumulated from 4 to 8 inches of snow tonight and could see another 2 to 4 inches accumulate overnight as the storm backs in off the ocean, said Kevin Cadima, a National Weather Service meteorologist. Mashpee was covered in 8 inches by 9 p.m.
"It'll be winding down after about 2 a.m.," said Cadima. "By daybreak, it'll be pretty much done."
Wind was expected to gust to about 65 mph overnight on the Cape, and gusts about 50 mph are expected to continue into Monday, Cadima said.
Temperatures in the area will be in the mid-30s with some snow, mixing, or rain likely tomorrow.
