Good morning, meteorologist Pete Mangione here, a lot to talk about in weather this morning!
NEW THIS MORNING: A Winter Storm Watch has been issued for Wednesday morning into Thursday morning. Significant snow accumulations are possible, especially north and west of I-95.
This storm likely won’t have the major coastal issues as the last storm and it won’t be as windy, but heavy, wet snow and wind are still in the cards. This means that unfortunately, there may be some more power outages.
Here is TJ Del Santo with a look at the snow for the rest of the morning:
Snow continues until about 8AM, but the morning commute could be slow-going by that time due to the earlier falling snow and potentially slick roads. Allow yourself some extra time Monday morning.
Generally, an inch or so is expected in Rhode Island with a bit more over Southeast Massachusetts. Because this is a fairly potent batch of energy dropping down out of Canada, there is the potential for a little more snow. The most likely areas to find accumulating snow are away from the coast.
Skies will slowly clear Monday with highs in the upper 30s to lower 40s.
