An update regarding the flash freeze potential across eastern MA and Rhode Island during the mid/late afternoon period. Current temps are in the upper teens and lower 20s across central and interior NE MA and this colder air will begin to move south across eastern MA and RI from north to south between 3 and 6 pm. Temps will quickly fall into and through the 20s resulting in a rapid freeze up and icy roads which will impact the evening commute.
The colder air will be accompanied by a period of light snow with additional accumulation of a coating to 2 inches through this evening.
