...Mainly wet roadways early this morning but some slush covered
roadways possible in bands of moderate snow...

Temperatures were mainly above freezing early this morning across
southern New England. So while snow has finally overspread much
of the region...accumulations of a coating to 2 inches will
generally occur on grassy surfaces. However...some roads may
become slushy for a time in bands of moderate snow especially
from Plymouth to Falmouth as well as the higher terrain of
northeast Connecticut and central Massachusetts. Any slippery
roadways should improve by late morning as temperatures rise above
