March 13th Update

The big storm developing along the Atlantic Seaboard Monday night into Tuesday is likely to come close enough to the coast to spare most of RI and SE MA from the heaviest snow. A change to sleet/rain is likely to happen pretty quickly on Cape Cod and the islands. A slower change to sleet is likely for interior SE MA and S RI, but it should be enough to cut down the snow totals. Snow will hang on longest in N RI.

Snow begins between 7-9 AM Tuesday and will become heavy by late in the morning. The change to sleet/rain is likely from south to north during the afternoon. Where it remains snow, 2-3″ per hour snow rates are possible in the afternoon. It will be a heavy, wet snow. Downed trees and power lines are possible as the wind gusts to near 50 mph in RI, and possibly to 60 mph on Cape Cod and the islands. 

The heaviest precipitation ends between 6-9 pm, and the storm moves away by midnight. Wednesday looks breezy, cold and dry with highs in the 30s. It will stay chilly through the workweek.
