Predicted Snowfall Hiked For Coventry

Weather Service warns drivers off roads as storm intensifies.


The National Weather Service has upgraded its Winter Storm Watch for the area to a Winter Storm Warning, adding a Wind Advisory, Hazardous Weather Outlook and Special Weather Statement, the last warning against travel tonight.

The NWS reports snow will fall tonight at rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour. Rhode Island is expected to get 4 to 8 inches, but a swath of the state and eastern Massachusetts - near Woonsocket - is expected to get 6 to 12 inches.

On Sunday, from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., the wind advisory warns of winds from 15 to 25 mph with gusts of up to 50 mph. The strongest gusts are expected between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. Downed tree limbs and power outages are possible. The NWS also warns against driving in these conditions, especially for high-profile vehicles.
