A front is stalled south of New England.  It will advance north as a warm front tonight.  Initially, it may be cold enough for some Freezing Rain in Worcester County.  The National Weather Service has issued a *Freezing Rain Advisory* from 8 PM tonight until 8 AM tomorrow morning.

Although high pressure is in control to our north, there will be a few isolated showers across the region.  Some rain showers are currently approaching the Mass Pike.
