Widely scattered snow showers will move across southern New England between 3 and 8 pm. There is also a low risk for an isolated heavy snow squall. The greatest threat will be along the east slopes of the Berkshires and northern Massachusetts, but very localized snow squalls are possible across the entire region. Any snow squall that is able to develop will bring the potential for very brief heavy snow with poor visibility and slippery roads. In addition, brief 40-50 mph wind gusts are possible mid to late afternoon as the arctic front moves through. The best chance for these stronger gusts will be over the higher terrain. While snow squalls are not expected to be widespread across our region...they have the potential to result in very localized hazardous travel so motorists should be prepared. $$
