A Wind Advisory has been issued along with the possibility of low visibility snow squalls.

According to the National Weather Service, a few snow squalls may impact the region until 6 pm today. While some areas will remain completely dry, a few localized areas may be impacted for a short time. The concern will be for brief heavy snow, very poor visibility, gusty winds and snow covered/icy roadways.

Motorists this afternoon should be prepared for localized slippery travel along with brief heavy snow and very poor visibility. This is especially true across the high terrain.

A Wind Advisory has also been issued that will bring single digit wind chills into Thursday.

Portions of eastern, northeastern and southeastern Massachusetts and northern and southern Rhode Island will see northwest winds 15 to 25 mph with gusts between 40 and 50 mph expected.

The advisory is in place until 1 AM EST Thursday.

Gusty winds could blow around unsecured objects. Tree limbs could be blown down and a few power outages may result.

Use extra caution when driving, especially if operating a high profile vehicle. Secure outdoor objects.
