Winter Weather Advisory

Statement as of 5:19 PM EST on January 23, 2017

Expires 7:00 AM EST on January 24, 2017


... Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect until 7 am EST
Tuesday...

* locations... east slopes of the Berkshires in western
Massachusetts... the higher elevations of northern Worcester
County... and extreme northwest Hartford County.

* Hazard types... freezing rain... sleet... and snow.

* Accumulations... snow/sleet accumulation of 3 to 6 inches across
the east slopes of the Berkshires with 1 to 4 inches along the
Massachusetts-New Hampshire border including the Route 2
corridor. For the Worcester Hills an inch or two accumulation
is likely. A tenth to a quarter inch of ice accretion is
possible across the high terrain along the east slopes of the
Berkshires and northern Worcester Hills.

* Uncertainty... snow and sleet this evening may transition to a
period of heavy wet snow overnight. If this occurs the higher
end of our snow forecast is likely with 6+ inches across the
east slopes of the Berkshires. If snow and sleet transition to
sleet and freezing rain then the lower end of our snow forecast
is likely... closer to 3 inches. A temperature change of 1 degree
can have a large impact on snow/sleet versus sleet and freezing
rain.

* Timing... light snow showers this evening will transition to a
steady and heavier snow and sleet later this evening and then
changing to sleet and freezing rain overnight into Tuesday
morning.

* Impacts... untreated roads and walkways will be slippery
especially this evening into Tuesday morning. There is a low
risk that enough ice accretion may occur to result in isolated
power outages.

* Winds... northeast 15 to 25 mph with gusts up to 45 mph.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Winter Weather Advisory means that periods of snow... sleet... or
freezing rain will cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for
slippery roads and limited visibilities... and use caution while
driving.
