Ice-covered roads along with a wintry mix of snow and sleet will greet commuters Tuesday morning and later in the afternoon, Dec. 29, as the first blast of winter, hits Belmont and Eastern Massachusetts, according to the latest forecast from the National Weather Service in Taunton.

The service issued a winter weather advisory at 10:15 p.m. Monday, Dec. 28 that will last until 1 p.m. Tuesday, resulting in hazardous travel conditions as a mix of snow and sleet coats streets and highways before dawn with a layer of an icy slush on untreated roadways.

While conditions will improve in the early afternoon as temperatures rise, streets will once again become slippery in the afternoon as a cold front comes through the Boston area, warns the service.

The snow will fall around midnight and continue to 4 a.m., turning to snow and sleet with the accumulation of around an inch possible. 
Rain, snow, and sleet will end before 7 a.m., then turning to rain and sleet between 7 a.m. and 10 a.m., then rain after 10 a.m. High near 36. New snow and sleet accumulation of less than one inch possible. 
Rain showers are likely before 9 p.m., then a chance of freezing drizzle between 9 p.m. and 2 a.m.
