A FLASH FREEZE will push in for the Thursday morning commute.
A winter storm will move into New England Wednesday with several inches of snow just north of Western MA.
The rain/snow line will stretch across Western MA initially by mid-morning Wednesday and then move close to the VT border by Wed. midday. It will swing back to the south as colder air returns early Thursday morning. Any moisture left over will change back to snow showers. A slushy coating may be on the ground in Springfield and Northampton Thursday morning for the commute, with a few inches likely along the Mohawk trail into the northern Berkshires. As temperatures drop 30 degrees in about 6 hours, all standing water and slush will freeze solid making for a slick Thursday morning commute.
