... Winter Storm Watch in effect from Friday afternoon through
Saturday afternoon...

The National Weather Service in Taunton has issued a Winter Storm
Watch, which is in effect from Friday afternoon through Saturday
afternoon.

* Locations... northeast Massachusetts including the Boston
metropolitan area.

* Hazard types... snow and sleet.

* Accumulations... 4 to 8 inches of snow and sleet possible.

* Timing... a mixture of snow, sleet and rain will develop Friday
morning but little if any accumulations are expected in the
morning. The precipitation will become heavier Friday afternoon
and evening with snow and/or sleet the main precipitation type.
Snow and sleet may change to rain for a time Friday night, but
probably will change back to snow Saturday morning and may
continue into the afternoon.

* Impacts... untreated roads will become slippery for the Friday
evening commute with snow and/or sleet. Slippery travel may
continue into Saturday morning with more snow and sleet
possible. If the higher snow amounts are realized, there will be
a risk for some downed tree limbs and isolated power outages.

* Confidence... precipitation types and accumulations are uncertain
as the area will be close to the snow/sleet/rain line.


Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Winter Storm Watch means there is a potential for significant
snow, sleet, or ice accumulations that may impact travel.
Continue to monitor the latest forecasts. Be prepared to modify
travel plans should winter weather develop.
