The National Weather Service office in Taunton, MA has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for most of Southeastern Massachusetts through late Thursday night. A complex disturbance over Southern New England will bring a light to moderate accumulating snow to Southeastern New England. While Southeastern Massachusetts is the favored area for more than two inches of snow, we, at Right Weather, also expect similar amounts in Southeastern Rhode Island. See the text below from the National Weather Service.
