...A BRIEF PERIOD OF ACCUMULATING SNOW DURING THE MORNING
COMMUTE...

AT 4 AM SNOW WAS OVERSPREADING WESTERN PARTS OF CONNECTICUT AND
MASSACHUSETTS. SNOW WILL CONTINUE MOVING EAST AND WILL OVERSPREAD
THE REMAINDER OF THE REGION THROUGH 7 AM. SNOW WILL QUICKLY BECOME
STEADY WITH MODERATE INTENSITY...HOWEVER THIS WILL BE SHORT LIVED AS
SNOW BECOMES LIGHTER AND INTERMITTENT LATER THIS MORNING. IN
ADDITION WARMER AIR WILL BEGIN ADVANCING NORTHWARD THROUGH THE
REGION...TURNING SNOW TO RAIN ACROSS MUCH OF CONNECTICUT...
RHODE ISLAND AND EASTERN MASSACHUSETTS LATER THIS MORNING.

ALL OF THESE FACTORS WILL LIMIT SNOWFALL TO A COATING TO ONE INCH
ACROSS RHODE ISLAND AND EASTERN MASSACHUSETTS. FARTHER
INLAND...NORTH AND WEST OF I-95 ACROSS CENTRAL-WESTERN
MASSACHUSETTS AND MUCH OF CONNECTICUT SNOW TOTALS WILL BE SLIGHTLY
HIGHER...ONE TO TWO INCHES WITH A LOW PROBABILITY OF UP TO 3
INCHES ACROSS WESTERN CONNECTICUT AND MASSACHUSETTS.

ANTICIPATE IMPACTS TO THE MORNING COMMUTE ESPECIALLY FROM
HARTFORD TO SPRINGFIELD. PLEASE BE PREPARED FOR HAZARDOUS TRAVEL
CONDITIONS AND REDUCED VISIBILITIES WITH SNOW.

PRECIPITATION WILL END THIS AFTERNOON FROM WEST TO EAST YIELDING
A DRY LATE DAY COMMUTE.
