Temperatures near the freezing mark across portions of interior
southern New England may lead to patches of black ice tonight
along area roadways... particularly across bridges and overpasses.
Areas of fog may also reduce visibilities... so motorists are urged
to drive with extra caution.
Snow will begin to develop Tuesday morning... intensifying around
the late-morning into the midday hours before tapering off into
evening. Widespread 1 to 3 inches of snow is anticipated along
and south of the Massachusetts Turnpike... but locally higher
amounts of 4 to 6 inches due to snow-banding will be possible in
proximity to the South-Coast including Cape Cod and the islands.
Winter weather advisories may need to be considered.
With any snow... expect slick and slippery conditions on untreated
surfaces. Hazardous driving conditions will exist. Visibilities will
be as low as a quarter mile or less at times due to snow.
