...A PERIOD OF ACCUMULATING SNOW LATE TONIGHT INTO THURSDAY MAY
IMPACT A PORTION OF THE MORNING COMMUTE...

Light rain and snow is expected to overspread the region late
tonight. The precipitation will likely begin as rain across much
of Rhode Island and southeast Massachusetts, but will flip to
snow between 5 and 7 am. The changeover to snow will occur later,
between 8 and 10 am, on Cape Cod.

Snow accumulations of 1 to 2 inches are expected, with locally up
to 3 inches possible in the hills of northeast Connecticut and
interior Rhode Island before the snow tapers off during the early
afternoon.

Part of the morning commute will be impacted with reduced visibility
and some slippery roads, especially over the higher elevations
where colder temperatures will result in snow covered roads. In
the coastal plain, most roads will likely be wet but a few
slippery spots are possible. Motorists should use caution while
traveling Thursday morning.
