BOSTON (CBS) – No blizzards or bombogenesis this week but we will have some impactful weather Tuesday
A combination of ice, wind and heavy rain will likely cause some minor issues.
Temperatures are at or below the 32 degree mark in most towns north and west of Boston this morning.
Even just outside the city, communities like Watertown, Melrose, Malden and Belmont just to name a few, have also dipped to the freezing mark.
With some pockets of light freezing rain and drizzle out there, untreated surfaces are a sheet of ice in spots (your driveways, porches, sidewalks, secondary roads etc.).
Check: School Delays
Use caution and walk gingerly this morning!
A winter weather advisory has been expanded inside of 128 north and west of Boston until 1 p.m.
Heaviest rain arrives Tuesday afternoon between 1 and 7 p.m.
Downpours will move quickly from west to east across the region.
A quick 1-to 1.5 inches is possible, but not enough for any major river flooding but some localized/urban flooding is likely.
Again, not a major concern, but winds will be somewhat gusty on Tuesday out of the south.
Most of the region should top out between 30-40 mph but there may be some gusts as high as 50 mph across far southeastern Mass. including Cape Cod and the Islands.
A very quiet and chilly finish to the week. Temperatures will be mainly in the 20s and 30s Wednesday through Friday.
And, in the longer term, it appears as though we may end January and begin February on the mild and quiet side.
