Flurries Fall During Tuesday Morning Commute

Light snow was falling over some parts of New England on Tuesday during the morning commute, creating the possibility of some slick spots as drivers made their way into work.

The Massachusetts Department of Transportation had 188 pieces of equipment deployed as of 6:20 a.m. Tuesday to help keep the roads clear amid the return of wintry weather. By just before 9 a.m. that number had increased to around 260 pieces of equipment.
