Forecast: Some Roads Are Icy, But Snow, Rain Or Mixed Precipitation Ends This Morning

This article is more than 2 years old.

A period snow and rain overnight has left some areas with a coating to a few inches of snow. Where temperatures have fallen below freezing, roads are also slick.

Any snow will come to an end this morning.

This afternoon, there could be some breaks of sunshine, but there will still be a lot of clouds. This is the last in a series of storms for a while — but not the last storm for the winter.

This weekend and much of school vacation week is looking just great with seasonable or even above-average temperatures. There are also no threats of snow, either.

Today's event has been caused by a low pressure system moving out to sea and becoming stronger at the same time. A piece of that storm's energy rotated around it, through Maine and into southern New England overnight.

The storm will continue to move south and east of the area today as sunshine returns for the end of the week and the weekend.
