1/22 9:50pm: Rain/snow line makes it to MA-NH border. Here is a close look at the greatest area of uncertainty on radar along the border:

1/22 9:19pm: National Weather Service confirms northern advancement of rain/snow line, mixing is occurring between all snow and all rain.

"KBOX CC displays a vivid band of transitioning precipitation moving north. The last few scans have stalled somewhat short of the NH border, and think S NH will remain snow for a couple more hours. mPING reports within this band range from snow on the north side to ice pellets and freezing rain/rain to the south. Will watch how this progresses, but current forecast seems well off for timing when mix may begin to invade SE NH."

1/22 8:38pm: The rain/snow line is advancing northward, mixing is occurring in a strip from Springfield, MA moving in a northeast direction to about Newburyport, MA. This northward advancement will continue.

1/22 8:06pm: Snow has filled out Vermont, New Hampshire and northern ans western Massachusetts; rain falling across eastern Connecticut, Rhode Island and the south shore. The rain/snow line is expected to advance north of the MA-NH border by 10-11pm tonight.
