At 2 PM light snow was developing across Long Island, southwest Connecticut and the New York City area. This area of snow will continue to expand in areal coverage and advance northeast across the remainder of Connecticut, Rhode Island and southeast Massachusetts between 4 pm and 7 pm. Snow will become moderate for a time from about 8 pm to 11 pm west to east from Hartford to Providence to Plymouth, with snow accumulations of an inch or two before tapering off from 11 pm to 1 am, again from west to east. Snow accumulations will be heavier along the south coast of RI and MA where 2-4 inches are expected. Given the cold temperatures untreated roads will quickly become snow covered and slippery. Allow extra time to reach your destination and exercise caution. $$ Nocera
