If the National Weather Service is correct, we’re just hours away from the first snowfall of the season.

The National Weather Service is forecasting snow showers to begin Monday and continue through tomorrow morning.  Meteorologist Bill Simpson says an Arctic front is moving into southern New England.

"With that Arctic front there could be some snow showers. It won’t be accumulating but any time you have some snow showers with an Arctic front it could snow pretty hard for a short period of time – just enough to make the roads slippery," said Simpson.

Just as the snow from last week’s blizzard was starting to melt away, revealing pavement on most roads and sidewalks, Rhode Islanders woke up Sunday to even more snow.

Forecasters predict between 6 to 8 inches of snow for Rhode Island, and up to 8 inches to fall by Sunday night in Boston. While southern New Hampshire and central Massachusetts could see less snow.
