...Pockets of freezing drizzle or black ice possible late tonight
and early Wednesday...

Moisture will be increasing late tonight near the coast as a weak
onshore flow develops. With temperatures below freezing, some of
this moisture may freeze on road surfaces with pockets of black ice
possible late tonight and early Wednesday. In addition, there is a
low risk for patchy freezing drizzle developing toward daybreak
across portions of Rhode Island and southeast Massachusetts which
could impact the morning commute.

While many areas will remain dry, motorists traveling to work or
school early Wednesday morning should be prepared for the
possibility of some slick roads due to black ice or pockets of
freezing drizzle.
