The national weather service in Taunton has issued a winter weather advisory for snow and light ice which is in effect until 7 a.m. Thursday. Locations include eastern Massachusetts west of the coastal plain, and the Providence metro area. Hazard types: accumulating snow followed by the potential for some light freezing rain. Accumulations: snow accumulation of up to 2 to 4 inches, along with around a trace of ice possible. Timing: snow will continue to overspread the region with the heaviest snowfall occurring this evening.
Any snow or ice would make driving and walking difficult, but not impossible on untreated roadways and sidewalks. When temperatures are below freezing motorists need to be especially careful on bridges and overpasses where slippery spots can easily develop.
