    ...WINTER STORM WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM SATURDAY AFTERNOON
    THROUGH SUNDAY EVENING...

    * WHAT...Heavy snow, sleet, and freezing rain. Total snow
    accumulations of 6 inches or more possible with the highest risk
    north of the Massachusetts Turnpike. Highest potential for over
    a foot of snow is north of Route 2 in Massachusetts. In
    addition, ice accretion of one tenth to three tenths of an inch
    are possible, mainly to the south of the Massachusetts Turnpike,
    with localized amounts up to one half inch possible.

    * WHERE...Northern Connecticut, northern Rhode Island and all of
    Massachusetts east of the Berkshires, except for the South
    Coast, Cape and islands.

    * WHEN...Mainly Saturday evening through Sunday afternoon.

    * ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Snow develops by early Saturday evening.
    The snow will change to sleet and freezing rain south of Route 2
    between midnight and 8 AM Sunday. The bulk of the freezing rain
    and ice accretion is expected south of the Massachusetts
    Turnpike, where some scattered power outages are possible if
    higher amounts occur. Precipitation may change to a period of
    all rain along and southeast of the Boston to Providence
    corridor for a time. If this occurs, rapidly falling
    temperatures on Sunday may result in a flash freeze. Mixed
    precipitation will transition back to a period of snow before
    ending sometime Sunday afternoon or early evening.

    PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

    A Winter Storm Watch means there is potential for significant
    snow, sleet or ice accumulations that may impact travel. Continue
    to monitor the latest forecasts.
