Snow to Make for a Messy Monday Evening Commute
The Newton area won't get a ton of snow, but a sleet and snow mix this evening could make roads slippery.
There may be an inch of snow on the ground on Monday evening during the evening commute, according to forecasters at WHDH-TV.
"Don't expect a ton of snow, but a general 1-3" falls late Monday afternoon, through the evening, producing slick roads, perhaps in time for the ride home from work," writes meteorologist Chris Lambert in his blog.
Even though not much snow will fall, Lambert said that the snow "will create slick spots on the roads Monday evening and Monday night."
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the Newton area, with 1 to 2 inches of snow accumulation forecasted.
The National Weather Service forecasts the snow will start to fall between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. in the Newton area. The precipitation will change over to sleet later in the evening, between 7 p.m. - 9 p.m.
Lambert also said the snow will change over to sleet and freezing rain "creating an icy glaze on top of the fresh inch or two of snow (close to the coast, snow goes to plain ole drizzle)."
On Tuesday morning, any precipitation will be strictly rain "as warm air finally wins the battle," Lambert said.
