Winter Weather Advisory


... Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect from 3 PM this
afternoon to 10 am EST Wednesday...

* locations... most of southern New England... away from the South
Coast.

* Hazard types... snow... sleet and freezing rain.

* Accumulations... snow accumulation of 2 to 4 inches... along with
a trace to a tenth of an inch of ice.

* Timing... snow begins late this afternoon and then transitions to
sleet and freezing rain from southwest to northeast during the
overnight hours. Then chances to rain early tomorrow morning.

* Impacts... untreated roads will be snow covered and slippery
Tuesday afternoon into evening impacting latter half of the
commute. Sleet and freezing rain overnight into tomorrow will be
an issue for the morning rush hour especially across interior
New England. The added ice and liquid water will add significant
weight to area roofs.

* Visibilities... one quarter to one half mile at times.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Winter Weather Advisory is issued when snow and/or ice is
forecast to develop in the affected areas... but accumulations are
expected to be light. Any snow or ice would result in slippery
conditions on untreated roadways and sidewalks. When temperatures
are below freezing... motorists need to be especially careful on
bridges and overpasses where slippery spots can easily develop.
