...A period of accumulating snow is expected this evening across
northeast Connecticut, Rhode Island and southeast Massachusetts...

Light snow will overspread the region between 5 and 8 pm, with a
period of moderate snowfall this evening, especially near the
south coast. Given the cold temperatures, untreated roads will
become snow covered and slippery which may impact the latter part
of the evening commute.

Snow accumulations of 1 to 3 inches are expected with the highest
amounts near the south coast, including Cape Cod where there is a
low risk for localized accumulations up to 4 inches.

Motorists are advised to use caution this evening.
