Winter weather advisory in effect for parts of Massachusetts

WORCESTER, Mass. — A winter weather advisory has been issued for parts of Massachusetts as a storm packing snow and rain approaches the region.

The advisory is in effect for parts of Franklin, Worcester, Middlesex, Hampden, Berkshire, and Hampshire counties from 7 p.m. Tuesday through 10 a.m. Wednesday.

Portions of central, eastern, and western Massachusetts could see snow accumulations of up to two inches, in addition to ice accumulations of a glaze to two tenths of an inch at or above elevations above 1,000 feet, according to the National Weather Service.

In a statement, the NWS said, “Plan on slippery road conditions. The hazardous conditions could impact the Wednesday morning commute.”

Up to three inches of snow is possible for parts of the Berkshires, as well as Southern New Hampshire.

The NWS issued a warning for residents of Berkshire County that stated, “Precipitation will begin as snow, then transition to a wintry mix including freezing rain by Wednesday morning. Precipitation tapers off Wednesday afternoon into early evening.”

Roads in the Boston area and across the Metrowest will just be wet with flakes not sticking to the ground.

Temperatures will be mild enough to support plain rain across much of Eastern Massachusetts.
