Feel free to ask any storm-related questions other than “how much will we get in ______?” in the comments section. Regarding how much snow you will receive, the best answer we can give is on the accumulation map. If there is a range, that’s because of the uncertainty in the forecast.
What is the latest wind info? Wondering both what the max will be in non-coastal Cranston and whether it will be enough to keep the roof relatively clear (still missing some shingles after last week’s fun storm — at least there’s tar paper nailed down until it can be fixed…)
Fred, can you tell us what makes this storm historic? Also, what are the conditions that would classify a blizzard, vs a snow storm? Thx
Thanks for all the info Fred. Worried about the wind here in Charlestown. Have about 3″ of wet snow as of now up on the hill about 4 miles from beach. More wet snow means alot of tree damage with winds. Do you think it will gust here over 60mph? If the low shifts just a little s/e will we be spared those high gusts? Thanks again
4pm and it looks as though the rain will never make it to Westerly, the temp as dropped back to ~32F. Gradually getting heavier with about 3in on the ground.
Closing in on 5″ in West Warwick Fred. Do you think there is any chance we get dry slotted?
