... Scattered but locally heavy snow showers may result in some
untreated roadways quickly becoming snow covered...

Scattered snow showers are expected to overspread western
Massachusetts and northern Connecticut early this
morning... including the Hartford and Springfield metropolitan
areas. Untreated roads may become snow covered and slippery in
this region for the morning commute.

These scattered snow showers should work into eastern
Massachusetts and Rhode Island by late morning and early
afternoon. While much of the activity will be light... localized
heavier snow showers may result in a quick inch or two of snowfall
in a short time. This would result in roads quickly becoming snow
covered and briefly poor visibility.

Localized heavier snow showers will be possible later this
morning... but somewhat of a higher risk this afternoon and into
the early evening before coming to an end. Motorists traveling
today should be prepared for snow covered roads and briefly poor
visibility.

... Scattered but locally heavy snow showers possible Wednesday...

Scattered snow showers will overspread the region Wednesday
morning across Connecticut and western-central Massachusetts... then
spreading eastward into Rhode Island and eastern Massachusetts
during the afternoon. Heavy snowfall amounts are not expected.
However... a few heavy snow showers may result in a quick 1 to 2
inches of snowfall in a short period of time resulting in roads
becoming snow covered.

This may impact the morning commute across Connecticut and
western-central Massachusetts including the greater
Hartford/Springfield area. Snow showers may linger into the late
afternoon across Rhode Island and eastern Massachusetts. This
would potentially impact the late day commute across this area.

The greatest risk for locally heavy snow showers is across western
portions of Connecticut and Massachusetts during the morning and
then in the afternoon over southern portions of Massachusetts and
Rhode Island. There is a low risk that a few locations in this
area could see localized snowfall amounts of 3 to 4 inches while
most locations experience less.

Given the forecast uncertainty stay tuned to later forecasts and
discussions on this evolving weather system.
