NORTON – The National Weather Service issued a snow squall warning until 7 p.m. for communities East of Route 495.

Snow squalls are likely this afternoon and evening bringing brief heavy snowfall, gusty winds, and low visibilities, said the national Weather Service out of Boston/Norton.

A fast-moving low pressure system coming from the from the Great Lakes will bring quick, intense bursts of snow. The Clipper system will also bring strong, gust winds that will deliver brief blizzard like conditions.

Most of Massachusetts is expected to receive less than an inch of snow , but higher elevations like the Worcester hills could see 2-3 inches of snow by the end of the day.

Avoid or delay traveling on the roads until any squall passes.

The best thing you can do if a snow squall occurs is to get off of the highway immediately.

Do not slam on your brakes.

Do not attempt to keep driving, as you will not be able to see the roadway and the road can quickly turn icy.

Exit the highway, pull off in a safe place away from traffic, and turn on your four-way flashers
