Winter Weather Advisory issued for parts of Massachusetts

A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for parts of Massachusetts.

According to the National Weather Service, in western Plymouth MA and Northern Bristol MA counties, including Taunton and Brockton, mixed precipitation is expected with total snow accumulations of up to one inch and ice accumulations of a light glaze.

The Advisory is in place from 1 AM to 9 AM EST Thursday.

Plan on slippery road conditions if you live in the designated area. The hazardous conditions could impact the morning commute.

Fall River, which is just below the advisory line, is expecting a mix of sleet and rain, which, unless you are a fan of snow and ice, is a better outcome than what was expected earlier in the week.

The Fall River area forecast:
