...A FEW VERY LOCALIZED SNOW SQUALLS ARE POSSIBLE BETWEEN 3 AND 8
PM ALONG WITH BRIEF STRONG WIND GUSTS...

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.
