...WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 2 PM THIS AFTERNOON TO
2 PM EDT SATURDAY...
The National Weather Service in Taunton has issued a Winter
Weather Advisory for a mix of snow, sleet and heavy rain, which
is in effect from 2 PM this afternoon to 2 PM EDT Saturday. The
Winter Storm Watch is no longer in effect.
* LOCATIONS...Northeast coastal Massachusetts including the
Boston Metropolitan area.
* HAZARD TYPES...Snow and sleet, mixing with rain late.
* ACCUMULATIONS...2 to 6 inches of snow.
* TIMING...Snow and sleet are possible at times through afternoon
but accumulations will be very light. The precipitation becomes
heavier late this afternoon and evening with snow and/or sleet
the main precipitation type. Snow and sleet may change to rain
for a time during the night, but probably will change back to
snow Saturday morning and may continue into the afternoon.
* IMPACTS...The heavy snow may make some roads hazardous and may
produce widespread power outages due to the weight of the snow
on tree limbs and power lines. Snow may struggle to accumulate
on roadways initially, but when the intensity increases tonight
into tomorrow, there is a higher risk for hazardous travel.
A Winter Weather Advisory means that periods of snow, sleet, or
freezing rain will cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for
slippery roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while
