...A snow squall will affect parts of the Merrimack Valley and North
Shore this afternoon...

At 152 PM EDT...snow squalls were over Dublin New Hampshire, near
Jaffrey, moving east at 50 mph.

Locations to be impacted include... Lowell, Lynn, Nashua, Lawrence,
Haverhill, Revere, Peabody, Methuen, Salem, Billerica, Beverly,
Woburn, Chelmsford, Andover, Dracut, Tewksbury, Gloucester, North
Andover, Melrose and Saugus.

Visibility will suddenly drop to roughly two miles in this squall,
resulting in briefly poor driving conditions due to the visibility
and slippery roads.

The snow squall should move offshore by 3 pm.

Drivers need to remain alert. These conditions often lead to
accidents, especially on highways, since road conditions can change
rapidly. Avoid braking suddenly. Consider delaying travel until the
squalls pass.
