This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for northern Connecticut, western,
central, eastern and northeastern Massachusetts, as well as northern
Rhode Island.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

Patchy dense fog with visibility down as low as a quarter of a mile
will continue to plague low lying interior valley locations this
morning, burning off shortly after sunrise.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday.


Wintry mix of snow, sleet, freezing rain, with mainly rain closer to
the south coast, will make for hazardous travel conditions, especially
around and north of the Massachusetts turnpike where minor accumulations
of a coating to 2 inches are forecast. Impacts for the midday into
evening commute.

Late Friday into Friday night and again around Sunday morning...

Especially across northern and western Massachusetts, there is the
threat of freezing rain along with ice accretion on the order of one
to two tenths that would require winter weather advisories.


Spotter activation is not expected at this time.
