What many consider the most accurate forecast model for winter storms affecting the east coast of the US, the European, continues to forecast 6-12″ north of Providence, 3-6″ south of Providence, and 1-2″ at the south coast.  The Cape and Islands will most likely be too warm for any measurable snow thanks to warm air mixing in. Highest amounts will fall in upstate New York, Northern Massachusetts, and Southern New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine.
