Ice pellets and freezing rain coming this way

Freezing drizzle advisory for SD&G

Snow comes to an end early Wednesday morning with 4-8 cm of accumulation. Ice totals look to range between a tenth and a quarter of an inch, and should taper off in the afternoon as temperatures rebound back above freezing.

The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory for the metro area beginning at noon Tuesday. Much of the freezing rain and sleet is expected to be northwest of the Boston-Providence corridor, it said.

The icy build-up could be heavy enough to cause tree branches to break - further complicating things for motorists. Colder toward the weekend, with another snow chance by Sunday.

The daytime high was 43 degrees warmer than Friday's high temperature - a remarkable increase for a 72-hour period.

Taylor said the high for Wednesday will be near -2 C. Northeast winds gusting up to 50 km/h will also generate local blowing snow, leading to reduced visibilities. Eastern Quebec will see snow changing to freezing rain overnight from Monday to Tuesday. 5-10 cm of drifting snow is likely through the day on gusty north winds. Travel could become hard, especially for the Wednesday morning commute.

Sat: High: 40 Low: 16 Mostly sunny to partly cloudy; breezy.
