...Spotty Light Freezing Rain Possible Across Northern
Massachusetts Tonight...

Spotty light rain or sprinkles may produce patchy ice on road and
walking surfaces across interior northern Massachusetts tonight,
mainly along and north of the route 2 corridor where temperatures
will be near freezing. The risk of spotty freezing rain will be
highest between midnight and 6 AM Saturday. Although only spotty
and very light precipitation is expected, it takes only a little
amount of freezing rain on bare and untreated surfaces to make
driving and walking treacherous.

Drivers across northern Massachusetts should exercise extra
caution if any precipitation is encountered tonight and check to
see if the rain is freezing upon road surfaces.
