Watches & Warnings

Special Statement
Issued: 3:17 PM EST Jan. 22, 2019 – National Weather Service

... A brief period of light freezing rain may impact the east
slopes of the Berkshires and northern Worcester Hills Wednesday
afternoon into early evening...

Scattered light precipitation is expected to develop during the
mid to late afternoon hours on Wednesday. While most of the
precipitation should be in the form of rain, it might be just cold
enough for a brief period of freezing rain at the onset. Even if
temperatures are a few degrees above freezing, some untreated
surfaces might become slippery given the very cold weather of the
last couple days.

Motorists planning travel later Wednesday afternoon into the
early evening hours should be prepared for the potential for
pockets of light freezing rain and slippery travel in the high
terrain.
