Southern Plymouth Severe Watches & Warnings NOAA Weather Radio

Winter Storm Warning
Statement as of 4:15 PM EST on March 01, 2015

... Winter Storm Warning remains in effect until 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... the snow will increase in intensity this evening
falling moderate to heavy at times. The bulk of the accumulating
snow will occur during this evening through 1 am. Snowfall rates
may be on the order of 1 inch per hour at times. The snow will
taper off toward daybreak Monday.

* Impacts... untreated roads will become snow covered and slippery.
Visibility will be poor 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 than forecast.

* 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.
