(WHDH) — A storm packing snow and ice is expected to create a slippery mess in some parts of Massachusetts and New Hampshire during the morning commute Tuesday.
The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory for Western Massachusetts, including Franklin County, Hampden County, Hampshire County, Worcester County and Middlesex County.
Periods of snow, sleet and freezing rain will cause traffic difficulties. Motorists are urged to plan on slippery spots during the morning commute.
Western Massachusetts could see 2 to 4 inches of snow, while other parts of the state could see a coating to 2 inches of snow topped with freezing rain.
A winter storm watch is in effect for most of New Hampshire until 1 a.m. Wednesday.
The heaviest snows will be over central and northern New Hampshire, according to the NWS. Snow accumulations of 7 to 10 inches, with localized amounts up to 12 inches, are expected.
Plan on difficult travel conditions, including during the evening commute, in the Granite State.
