The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for Southeastern Massachusetts, including Marion, Mattapoisett and Rochester. The advisory is in effect until 6:00 am Tuesday.
Snow accumulations will only reach 1-2 inches, however freezing rain and drizzle could create problems on the roads. Temperatures will remain in the lower 30′s creating slick driving conditions. Please drive slowly and carefully.
A Winter Weather Advisory is issued when snow and / or ice is forecast to develop in the affected areas. Accumulations are expected to be light. Any snow or ice would make driving and walking difficult, but not impossible, on untreated roadways and sidewalks when temperatures are below freezing. Motorists need to be especially careful on bridges and overpasses where slippery spots can easily develop.
