Steady Snow, Rain Expected in Braintree Through Tonight, into Thursday

One to three inches of accumulation is expected in Braintree tonight, and an inch or two tomorrow.

Snow began to stick in Braintree early Wednesday afternoon and is forecast to pile up two to five inches by Thursday night as a wide swath of New England sees at-times heavy precipitation.

The Boston area may see a mix of snow and rain later Wednesday night, according to the National Weather Service, which issued a "Special Weather Statement" predicting icy spots on roadways as the sun sets.

From the report:

"SNOW WILL OCCASIONALLY FALL HEAVY AT TIMES THROUGH THE EVENING
RUSH HOUR...ESPECIALLY FROM THE HARTFORD SPRINGFIELD AREA TO
PROVIDENCE. SNOWFALL RATES WILL APPROACH ONE INCH PER HOUR...WITH
MOST OF THE ACCUMULATION ON THE GRASS.

IN ADDITION TO POOR VISIBILITY...DRIVERS SHOULD ALLOW EXTRA
TRAVEL TIME AND BE ALERT FOR ICY SPOTS ON BRIDGES...RAMPS AND
SECONDARY ROADS."

On Thursday, the wintry mix will likely become all snow after 11 a.m. and continue for about 12 hours, according to the NWS. Keep tuned to Braintree Patch for updates.
