Region – We can expect another round of light snow to a wintry mix to bother us tomorrow. Snow will begin early tomorrow morning in the pre-dawn hours and transition to a mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain by mid to late morning, and there is a chance of some plain rain mixing in during the late afternoon as well. The wintry mix will continue into the evening before ending just before midnight. Accumulations of snow will be negligible, likely 1 inch near the junction of Routes 495 and the Mass Pike, increasing to about 3 inches to the west and north of the Shrewsbury area the high ground communities of Princeton, Holden, Rutland and Paxton. In and around Shrewsbury there should be no more than two inches or so with a thin glaze of ice in addition to the snow. Timing is the major problem with this storm as it will cause slippery travel conditions for the morning commute. Everything will be winding down Monday night and we will have relatively quiet weather for the rest of the week with normal to a bit colder than normal temperatures throughout. The threat for the late week storm has dissipated.
