It is looking like we could have a messy commute early next week.

According to the National Weather Service, while potential accumulations of snow and/or sleet remain uncertain, a significant impact for the Tuesday afternoon and evening commute appears likely with temperatures in the 20s.

Snow is expected to spread over southern New England sometime after the Tuesday AM rush hour.

Greatest risk for higher amounts will be north of the MA turnpike.

Significant impact for the Tuesday PM commute is likely across most of the region with temperatures mainly in the 20s.

Snow/sleet changes to all rain across eastern MA/RI late Tuesday night, but may remain wintry further inland before ending Wednesday morning.

Here is the current storm forecast for our area:
