Instead of Monday afternoon into Tuesday morning, the bulk of the rain will be early Tuesday morning through early Tuesday afternoon. Pictured below is the GFS valid for Tuesday 7:00 AM:

The general theme here is a quite end to January in terms of snow. But February looks to bring back multiple snow chances and more sustain cold.
