Cold Rain, Strong Gusts, A Little Snow

Good Evening From Chief Meteorologist Tony Petrarca..

A mostly cold rain and wind storm for southeastern New England…however for  a short time, a brief period of wet snow in northwest RI. A small slushy coating on  non paved surfaces, north and west of route 295 and some higher elevations of western Kent County by Weds evening before changing over to all rain…

Strongest winds Wednesday will near the the south shore where a High Wind Warning is in effect.  Gusts from the northeast up to 55 mph. Wind gusts  further inland away from the shore, not as strong, but still significant, up to 40-45 mph. Gusts of this magnitude will produce sporadic power outages, but not as widespread as Sandy last week. Infact coastal flood threat on the south shore is expected to be minor…large waves and some beach erosion likely however.
