through Thursday morning...
* uncertainty/forecast confidence... there remains some uncertainty
on the exact timing of snow changing over to a wintry mix later
Wednesday... before changing back to all snow Wednesday night
into Thursday morning. The timing of this changeover will
greatly impact snow totals. Therefore snow accumulations below

Massachusetts as well as the east slopes of the Berkshires.
* Hazard types... heavy wet snow.
* Accumulations... snow accumulation of 5 to 10 inches... along
with around a trace of ice. Moderate to high confidence for at
least 5 inches... but much lower confidence on amounts near 10
* Timing... snow begins Wednesday morning... possibly changing to
a wintry mix late Wednesday/Wednesday evening before changing
back to all snow Wednesday night into Thursday early. Heaviest
precipitation appears to fall late Wednesday into Wednesday
* Impacts... wet snow could make for hazardous travel with poor
visibility at times. In addition there is a low risk of power
outages as heavy wet snow could down a few tree limbs.
* Winds... north 10 to 20 mph with gusts up to 30 mph.
A Winter Storm Watch is issued for the potential of accumulating
snow of 6 or more inches in a 12 hour period... or 8 or more
