Winter Storm Tonight

MassDOT Winter Storm Advisory
 
Overnight snow, freezing rain, and heavy winds anticipated across statewide regions 
 
Motorists are advised to allow extra travel time and delay trips if possible
 
 
BOSTON – The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) is advising travelers that a strong fast-moving winter storm system is scheduled take place overnight tonight and will include snow accumulations in various statewide regions, freezing rain, sleet and heavy winds which may reduce visibility and impact travel.  Members of the public are encouraged to travel only if necessary and delay previously scheduled trips if possible. MassDOT crews will be chemically treating and salting roadways but rain, freezing rain and snow in various statewide regions may result in slippery conditions which will impact roadway conditions.  
 
The current forecast calls for precipitation to begin as snow for most areas and then change to rain later tonight through Monday morning across the eastern areas of the state.  At this time, more significant snow accumulation is forecasted to occur across higher elevations in Western and Central Massachusetts.  In addition, a strong onshore flow may increase the risk for widespread coastal flooding Monday morning, especially around the time of high tide. 
 
Drivers who must make trips should expect delays, reduce speed, and use caution.
