Very windy and frigid through daybreak Saturday. Temperatures fall to 5-10 by dawn, with wind chills -10 to -20. Winds north 20-25 mph and gusts 30-40 mph

Saturday will be a frigid day with gusty winds which will maintain sub-zero wind chills all day. Wind chills will remain well below zero at times, especially during the morning when they could dip as low as -10 to -20. Winds will still gust 30-35 mph in the morning and then gradually diminish late day and evening. High will stay in the ‘teens to near 20 even with lots of sun.

Saturday night will be frigid as well, but with lighter winds. Skies will be clear and lows will drop to 0 to 10. Winds chills will be around -5 to -10.

Sunday starts off frigid, temperatures will moderate a bit in the afternoon with highs near 28°. A sunny start will give way to late day clouds, but it will be dry all day.

SUNDAY AFTERNOON FORECAST 1:30PM Hazy sunshine, dry very cold but with less wind than Saturday

SUNDAY EVENING FORECAST 7:30PM Increasing clouds, wet snow approaching New York City will arrive in our area around midnight.

The weather goes downhill Sunday night as a major winter storm moves into the northeastern US. However, right, the storm track would favor more rain than snow for southeastern New England.

LATE SUNDAY NIGHT/EARLY MONDAY MORING 1:30AM Wet snow and sleet, with some rain along the south shore. There is the potential for some accumulations well inland (1-3″ possible in northwest Rhode Island) before changing to heavy rain. Wind gusts will start to ramp up and may peak close to 60 mph by 7am Monday along the coast.

MONDAY MORNING FORECAST 7:00AM: Windswept heavy rain expected, along with the potential for coastal flooding during the 7AM high tide cycle. Strongest wind gusts expected during this time….East-Southeast 20-30 mph with gusts to 55-65mph !!


Heavy snows likely in Upstate New York and the mountains of northern New England with a little snow and mostly rain here in southern New England.

***Slight changes in the storm track would have significant impacts on how much of the storm falls as snow or rain for our area, so please check back with us over the weekend for updates.***

Coastal gusts 60mph+ could lead to power outages. The time line for these damaging gusts is from roughly 4am thru 10am Monday morning
