...WINTER STORM WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM SATURDAY AFTERNOON
THROUGH SUNDAY EVENING...

* WHAT...Heavy snow, sleet, and freezing rain. Total snow
accumulations of 6 inches or more possible with the highest risk
north of the Massachusetts turnpike. Highest potential for over
a foot of snow is north of route 2 in Massachusetts. In
addition, ice accretion of one tenth to three tenths of an inch
are possible mainly to the south of the Massachusetts turnpike
with localized amounts up to one half inch possible.

* WHERE...Northern Connecticut, northern Rhode Island and all of
Massachusetts east of the Berkshires.

* WHEN...Mainly Saturday evening through Sunday afternoon.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Snow develops by early Saturday evening.
The snow will change to sleet and freezing rain south of route 2
between midnight and 6 am Sunday. The bulk of the freezing rain
and ice accretion is expected south of the Massachusetts
turnpike, where some scattered power outages are possible if
higher amounts occur. Precipitation may change to a period of
all rain along and southeast of the Boston to Providence
corridor for a time. If this occurs, rapidly falling
temperatures on Sunday may result in a flash freeze. Mixed
precipitation will transition back to a period of snow before
ending sometime Sunday afternoon or early evening.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Winter Storm Watch means there is potential for significant
snow, sleet or ice accumulations that may impact travel. Continue
to monitor the latest forecasts.

...SOME SLIPPERY TRAVEL POSSIBLE LATE TONIGHT AND DURING THE
FRIDAY MORNING COMMUTE...

A period of light snow is expected after midnight tonight and
during Friday morning across the area. Snowfall accumulations are
expected to range from a dusting to 2 inches. While the snow is
expected to be light, temperatures in the teens and 20s will
allow any snow to stick on untreated roads. This could lead to
slippery travel for the morning commute.

Motorists should use caution late tonight and Friday morning.
Precipitation is expected to end towards midday Friday, possibly
ending as some light rain over east coastal MA and RI.

...COASTAL FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT SUNDAY MORNING...

The National Weather Service in Boston/Norton has issued a
Coastal Flood Watch, which is in effect Sunday morning.

* LOCATIONS...East Coastal Massachusetts from Essex County to
Nantucket.

* TIMING...Sunday morning. High tide around 10AM.

* COASTAL FLOOD IMPACTS...Minor to moderate coastal flooding is
possible. Vulnerable shore roads or basements may become
inundated. Road closures are possible. Some minor beach erosion
is also possible.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Coastal Flood Watch means that potential exists for moderate coastal
flooding. Moderate coastal flooding produces widespread flooding
of vulnerable shore roads and/or basements due to the height of
the storm tide and/or wave action. Numerous road closures are
needed. Lives may be at risk for people who put themselves in
harms way. Isolated structural damage may be possible.

&&

Time of high total tides are approximate to the nearest hour.
Category thresholds are based on still water levels. Impacts
may be greater, depending upon wave action.
