UPDATED: Winter Storm Watch Issued for Monday Afternoon, Tuesday Morning

Several inches of snow could fall in Eastern Massachusetts from the winter storm.

[UPDATE: Jan. 21, 4:42 p.m.]

That snow is expected to begin as flurries early Monday evening and cause a bit of a headache come Tuesday morning's commute.

The bulk of the snow is expected along the coasts, with the Cape and coastal New Hampshire predicted to receive 5 or more inches, according to the WHDH weather blog. The western suburbs fall in the area predicted to receive 2-3 inches, but Boston is on the border of the 2-3 and 3-5 inch lines.

Most of the snow is expected to fall late tonight through Tuesday mid-day. Along with the snow, according to WHDH, will come arctic air that is expected to stick around throughout the coming week.

[UPDATE: Jan 21, 8:17 a.m.]

Forecasters say the snow will start hitting the coast about 5 p.m. Monday, and then drop 3-5 inches of snow along near the coast and 1 to 3 inches inland, according to the WHDH Channel 7 forecast.

Most of the snow is expected to fall on Tuesday.

Is there any way of canceling this snow storm. Where can I walk my dog? Where will he mess? What will happen if my plastic poop bags get blown away? How will I maneuver my dog in the snow? My dog wont like this. What should I tell him? He will be very upset with me when he finds out. Advice please, people.
