There may be an inch of snow on the ground on Monday evening during the evening commute, according to forecasters at WHDH-TV.

"Don't expect a ton of snow, but a general 1-3" falls late Monday afternoon, through the evening, producing slick roads, perhaps in time for the ride home from work," writes meterologist Chris Lambert in his blog.

Even though not much snow will fall, Lambert said that the snow "will create slick spots on the roads Monday evening and Monday night."

The National Weather Service forecasts that the snow will start after 3 p.m. in the Bedford area. The precipitation will change over to sleet later in the evening. Based on the forecast, the weather service has issued a winter weather advisory that runs from 1 p.m. on Monday through 6 a.m. on Tuesday. The weather service predicts that a total of 1-3 inches of precipitation will fall.

Lambert also said the snow will change over to sleet and freezing rain "creating an icy glaze on top of the fresh inch or two of snow (close to the coast, snow goes to plain ole drizzle)."

On Tuesday morning, any precipitation will be strictly rain "as warm air finally wins the battle," Lambert said.
