A storm system will continue to impact New England now through Tuesday night, bringing a variety of weather hazards, including:

A “Winter Storm Warning Tuesday” has been issued for far Northwest Rhode Island where 4-7″ of snow is possible.
A “Winter Weather Advisory Tuesday” is in effect for the rest of the area, but excluding Newport County… the potential for 2-4″of snow in the Advisory areas
A “High Wind Warning” has been issued for far eastern MA for gusts 50-65mph. (Cape, eastern Plymouth, Boston, etc.) No other wind headlines at this time.
Strong wind gusts will develop Tuesday. Northeast winds will gust 30-50mph by afternoon and night.
Heavy “wet” snow is expected which will cling to trees and power lines. With strong wind gusts, power outages are possible — again, this risk is mainly for northern Rhode Island.
