Winter Storm Warning

Statement as of 4:15 AM EST on March 01, 2015

Expires 7:00 AM EST on March 02, 2015


... Winter Storm Warning in effect from 3 PM this afternoon to
7 am EST Monday...

The National Weather Service in Taunton has issued a Winter Storm
Warning... which is in effect from 3 PM this afternoon to 7 am EST
Monday.

* Locations... central and southern Rhode Island as well as most of
southeast Massachusetts right to the South Coast and as far east
as the Cape Cod canal.

* Hazard types... wet snow.

* Accumulations... 4 to 8 inches of snow.

* Timing... areas of light snow will develop this afternoon. The
snow will increase in intensity this evening falling moderate to
heavy at times. The bulk of the accumulating snow will occur
between 4 PM and 1 am... when snowfall rates may be on the order
of 1 inch per hour. The snow will taper off to flurries toward
daybreak Monday.

* Impacts... untreated roads will become snow covered and slippery
by this evening along with poor visibility at times. Given
temperatures will be near freezing... the snow will be of the
wet variety especially near the South Coast. This may exacerbate
any on going roof problems.

* Uncertainty... the heaviest snow looks to occur close to the
South Coast. However... there is a low risk the snow could mix
with or change to a period of rain near the South Coast. If this
occurs... snow accumulations will be less then what were
forecasting.

* Winds... southwest 5 to 10 mph.

* Visibilities... one half mile or less at times.

* Temperatures... in the upper 20s and lower 30s.


Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Winter Storm Warning is issued when an average of 6 or more
inches of snow is expected in a 12 hour period... or for 8 or more
inches in a 24 hour period. Travel will be slow at best on well
treated surfaces... and quite difficult on any unplowed or
untreated surfaces.
