Watches & Warnings

Special Statement
Issued: 9:47 PM EST Feb. 9, 2016 – National Weather Service

... Scattered but locally heavy snow showers possible Wednesday...

Scattered snow showers will overspread the region Wednesday
morning across Connecticut and western-central Massachusetts... then
spreading eastward into Rhode Island and eastern Massachusetts
during the afternoon. Heavy snowfall amounts are not expected.
However... a few heavy snow showers may result in a quick 1 to 2
inches of snowfall in a short period of time resulting in roads
becoming snow covered.

This may impact the morning commute across Connecticut and
western-central Massachusetts including the greater
Hartford/Springfield area. Snow showers may linger into the late
afternoon across Rhode Island and eastern Massachusetts. This
would potentially impact the late day commute across this area.

The greatest risk for locally heavy snow showers is across western
portions of Connecticut and Massachusetts during the morning and
then in the afternoon over southern portions of Massachusetts and
Rhode Island. There is a low risk that a few locations in this
area could see localized snowfall amounts of 3 to 4 inches while
most locations experience less.

Given the forecast uncertainty stay tuned to later forecasts and
discussions on this evolving weather system.
