The snow may have begun to taper off, as today's storm moves out of the region — but in a special weather statement the National Weather Service is warning that dropping temperatures tonight into Tuesday morning will lead to iced over roadways and sidewalks creating slippery travel conditions.

"Take time to treat sidewalks and road and exercise caution," the meteorologists urge residents throughout the region.

The overnight low for Milford is expected to reach about 21 degrees.

In the latest updated winter weather advisory tonight, the National Weather Service is calling for significant periods of moderate to heavy snow, which will reduce visibility down to a quarter to one-half of a mile at times.

"A mix of light rain and snow will change over quickly to all snow around daybreak," the NWS meteorologists report. "The snow will be moderate to heavy at times, in particular during the late morning and early afternoon hours."

Milford Patch will continue to provide updates as this latest storm moves into the region.

Update at 4:15 p.m.

The National Weather Service has just issued a winter weather advisory for Milford, as well as much of the rest of the shoreline region. 

The advisory will be in effect from 5 a.m. through to 7 p.m. Monday. 

The quick moving storm is expected to drop up to 5 inches or more of wet, heavy snow as it moves through the area.

A wintry mix should begin to fall here starting in the early morning.

"As the precipitation becomes heavier Monday morning, the precipitation will change to all snow," the NWS meteorologists state in their report. "The snow will taper off from west to east by late afternoon and end early in the evening."

The snow covered roadways will make for slippery travel. And the heavy snow could result in fallen tree limbs and power outages in some areas.

Milford Patch will continue to share additional updates related to Monday's storm, including any closures, delays or early dismissal for the schools.

Original Post

Punxsutawney Phil predicted more winter Sunday and that's exactly what we'll see this week, beginning with snow on Monday.

The storm could bring anywhere between 3 inches and 7 inches along the coast, according to the National Weather Service (NWS), which issued a Hazardous Weather Outlook ahead of the storm.

The precipitation will start before dawn Monday in the form of rain, sleet and snow. By 4 a.m., it will likely just be snow coming down and it will stay that way till about 2 p.m., the NWS predicts.

Tuesday will bring mostly sunny skies, and then there's a chance for another wintry mix Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.
