...Accumulating Snow Likely Thursday morning South Coastal
Massachusetts and Rhode Island, including Cape Cod and Islands...

Light snow will overspread Connecticut, Rhode Island and southeast
Massachusetts between 4 AM and 7 AM. A band of moderate snow will
likely then develop between 7 AM and 10 AM along the immediate
south coast and islands, then quickly moving offshore by midday
with dry weather to follow.

This band of moderate snow will likely result in snow accumulations
of 1-3 inches along the immediate south coast of Massachusetts
and Rhode Island, including the islands. Given the timing and the
cold airmass over the region roads will quickly become snow
covered and impact the morning commute from Westerly to Newport
to New Bedford to Cape Cod.

Farther north snow intensity will decrease with just light snow or
flurries across the remainder of Connecticut, Rhode Island and
Massachusetts, with little if any snow north of the Mass Pike.
However there is some uncertainty how far north the accumulating
snow shield will track. There is a low probability that
accumulating snow could reach Hartford to Providence to Plymouth.

Stay tuned to later forecasts for any possible changes.
