...Brief period of moderate snow late this morning and early

Snow will overspread much of Massachusetts, Rhode Island and
Connecticut between 11 AM and 2 PM and will likely become moderate
to perhaps briefly heavy for an hour or two before mixing with
sleet and then changing over to rain. Snow accumulations will
range from a coating to two inches, with a low probability of a
few locations picking up near 3 inches.

However with temperatures at or slightly above freezing during
this time, most snow accumulations will be confined to non paved
surfaces. The exception will be across the higher terrain where
colder temperatures will result in a minor slushy accumulation on
area roadways. Nonetheless moderate snow will result in poor
visibility and impact travel. However by 4 PM or so much of the
snow will have changed over to all rain, providing little if any
impact to the late day commute.
