Watches & Warnings

Special Statement
Issued: 10:34 AM EST Feb. 10, 2016 – National Weather Service

... Scattered but locally heavy snow showers possible this
afternoon...

An area of snow produced minor accumulations in western New
England earlier this morning. Light snow is lifting across
Massachusetts... but another round of scattered snow showers is
expected this afternoon across southern New England.

While much of the activity will be light... localized heavier snow
showers and squalls may result in a quick inch or two of snowfall
in a short time. Any heavier squalls will be isolated but where
they occur will result in roads quickly becoming snow covered and
briefly poor visibility.

Motorists traveling today should be prepared for snow covered
roads and briefly poor visibility.


339 am EST Wed Feb 10 2016

... Scattered but locally heavy snow showers may result in some
untreated roadways quickly becoming snow covered...

Scattered snow showers are expected to overspread western
Massachusetts and northern Connecticut early this
morning... including the Hartford and Springfield metropolitan
areas. Untreated roads may become snow covered and slippery in
this region for the morning commute.

These scattered snow showers should work into eastern
Massachusetts and Rhode Island by late morning and early
afternoon. While much of the activity will be light... localized
heavier snow showers may result in a quick inch or two of snowfall
in a short time. This would result in roads quickly becoming snow
covered and briefly poor visibility.

Localized heavier snow showers will be possible later this
morning... but somewhat of a higher risk this afternoon and into
the early evening before coming to an end. Motorists traveling
today should be prepared for snow covered roads and briefly poor
visibility.
