Environment Canada's special weather statement was upgraded to a winter storm watch Sunday afternoon.

Cities along the Washington-Oregon border near Portland are within the zones that may get more than three feet of snow in total.

The national weather agency says the precipitation will begin as snow overnight, changing to ice pellets before turning into freezing rain - the result of a Colorado low crossing Southern Ontario.

The 10 top local news stories from metro Boston and around New England delivered daily. Widespread light to moderate snow is expected through the day with it winding down just a little before sunset.

If the air temperature remains above freezing for longer, that precipitation is more likely to be sleet or rain, rather than ice or snow.

The North Shore and areas west of Interstate 495, however, are primed to receive more.

Meanwhile, Bruce and Grey counties are under a Winter Storm Watch.

How much is possible in an extreme case?

Northern suburbs and northwestern suburbs stand the greatest chance of getting maybe 1 to 2 inches of snow.

Snowfall amounts will range from an inch to 3 inches (2.5 centimeters to 7.6 centimeters) through Sunday night, on top of the foot that has already accumulated over the weekend in some areas.

And what if this storm's a dud? South of DC, it looks like a brief mix then all rain by early Monday morning.

After the snow pushes through area, the city and surrounding suburbs could see a few rounds of freezing drizzle before the start of the work week, the weather services said in a hazardous weather outlook.
