Power Outage Threat Will Increase

While the snow may look pretty on the trees and roads, the weight of the snow will be a hazard overnight and through the day on Sunday. 

Winds will be increasing from the northwest through Sunday.  Sustained winds of 15-25mph are likely, but gusts between 35-45mph could easily snap already weighted-down tree limbs and power lines.  Isolated power outages are possible on Sunday (there have already been a few across RI and MA this evening).

Remember the common sense stuff: if you see a power line down, assume it is live and call the electric company and or police/fire.

Also, it’s a heavy, wet snow and difficult to move….be careful while shoveling.

Enjoy the snow on Sunday!
