MassDOT has already warned drivers about the slick road conditions expected Saturday.

“Arctic air comes charging back in on Saturday. As part of this storm, a flash freeze is a concern,” Meteorologist Chris Lambert said.

A wind advisory is also in effect for southeastern Massachusetts through Saturday morning. Gusts between 40-50 mph are expected.

A flash flood warning is in effect Saturday until 11 a.m. in MA.

> [Flash Freeze] Warm temps this morning but it wont last long. Much colder air in W MA and E NY will sweep across SNE through the morning and early afternoon. Temps will crash through the 30s and into the 20s resulting in any standing water freezing. Use caution on roadways. pic.twitter.com/yTTerVGBx9 ( https://t.co/yTTerVGBx9 )
