There may be an inch or two of snow on the ground by Monday evening's commute, according to forecasters at WHDH-TV.

A second storm is headed to the area and could make driving hazardous on Saturday.
A second storm of the week is headed toward New England and will dump more snow onto the area on Saturday. A recently posted update on WCVB's weather website is predicting that more than a foot of snow will have fallen in locations across the North Shore by mid-morning Sunday. Meanwhile, 7News meteorologists and the National Weather Service are predicting Salem will get between 2 to 4 inches of snow in the storm that is expected to start on Saturday afternoon and spread into the early hours of Sunday. The good news is that snow removal shouldn’t be a backbreaking endeavour. CBSBoston’s Todd Gutner said the snow will be “dry and fluffy for most,” though he warned that driving could be hazardous at times on Saturday.
