FIRST ALERT: Parts of New England to See Scattered Rain, Snow

Mountain snow continues this evening and tonight, while the rain/snow line continues to slowly sink to the south and east overnight.

The evening drive with be interrupted by scattered rain across southern New England. Northern New England will see a few inches of snow on the roads and this will cause a slow commute with the slick roads.

Once the rain starts across Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts, temperatures fall quickly and cold rain moves in tonight. The temperatures finally drop to where we can see snowflakes mixing in around midnight in the Hartford, Worcester and Boston areas.

We don't expect much (if any) accumulation with this as the precipitation shuts off quickly and moves out before dawn. A few flurries may fall across the outer cape Friday afternoon and some mountain snow showers will add to the totals, but otherwise, the wind and cold will take over.

Accumulations will be a coating outside of Route 128, a coating to 1 inch around the Worcester Hills in grassy areas to southern New Hampshire. We expect 1-3 inches in northern New England with higher elevations receiving 3 or more inches.

Our cold blast will bring temperatures down to the 20s overnight. Highs on Friday will reach the 30s, but with a gusts northwest wind between 25 and 35 mph, it will feel like the teens north and like the 20s south.

More cold air lingers into Saturday, but the wind will be lighter so it will already feel like an improvement.

A southwest breeze on Sunday will help to bring in increasing clouds but also milder highs in the low 50s. Some could see a few sprinkles in the afternoon.

Veterans Day looks dry until overnight when out next storm system heads in. This will bring more rain than snow for most of us into Tuesday. After that system we will have another big chill for the middle of the week.
