Fast Falling Flakes Could Equal Icy Commutes

With heavy snow in the forecast through rush hour, the National Weather Service is advising commuters to use care on the roads. No word yet on how snow and slick conditions could impact tonight's Planning Board meeting.

Snow's falling -- and sticking -- in and around Lexington and heavy snowfalls are expected to continue through rush hour before possibly tapering off later tonight.

As such, the National Weather Service has issued a special weather statement advising commuters to take it slow and expect slick conditions.

"Although roadways have primarily been wet this afternoon, expect icy spots to develop as sunset approaches," the NWS statement says. "Snow will occasionally fall heavy at times through the evening rush hour. ... In addition to poor visibility, drivers should allow extra travel time and be alert for icy spots on bridges, ramps and secondary roads."

In a winter weather advisory posted earlier today, the NWS said accumulations could total three to six inches, with a coating of ice. The snow and patchy fog are expected to continue into tomorrow, the NWS said.

Shortly after 3 p.m., a member of the Lexington Planning Department told Patch the is still on for 7:30 p.m. at , but would have to be postponed if the school is closed.

The staff member reached by phone said if a decision to postpone is made before 5 p.m., then it would be posted to the town website, but if the call comes after that, then an automated message will be left on the department's voicemail at 781-862-0500 Ext. 245.
