More wet, snowy and windy weather is heading our way tonight: The National Weather Service in Taunton has issued a winter weather advisory effective from 7 p.m. until tomorrow at 1 p.m.
According to the NWS:
- There is the potential for heavy snow along with strong winds across the far southeast New England coast Saturday night into early Sunday afternoon.
- A mixture of light rain and snow will develop today. Little if any accumulation is expected through this afternoon.
- Any mixed precipitation should change over to snow this evening.
- The snow may fall heavily for a time tonight and Sunday morning.
- Untreated roads and walkways will become snow-covered.
- Strong winds will develop after midnight and continue through Sunday.
- This may result in poor visibilities and perhaps near-whiteout conditions for a time.
- The initially wet snow combined with the wind could result in some downed tree limbs and a few power outages.
- Winds: north 20 to 30 mph with gusts up to 45 mph.
- Temperatures: around 30.
- Visibilities: less than one mile, occasionally near one-half mile.
- Any snow or ice would make driving and walking difficult but not impossible on untreated roadways and sidewalks.
- When temperatures are below freezing motorists need to be especially careful on bridges and overpasses where slippery spots can easily develop.
- A winter weather advisory is issued when snow and/or ice is forecast to develop in the affected areas, but accumulations are expected to be light.
