    Here is the news as of 4AM this morning.
    All you RT95 guys be ready for this one!

    Everyone just be safe remember it's been a while since you had that big metal thing hanging off the front of your trucks :)

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

    THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN TAUNTON HAS ISSUED A WINTER STORM
    WATCH...WHICH IS IN EFFECT FROM SATURDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH SUNDAY
    AFTERNOON. THIS WATCH INCLUDES ALL OF SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND.

    SNOW IS EXPECTED TO REACH THE SOUTH COAST LATE SATURDAY AFTERNOON.
    IT SHOULD SPREAD NORTH INTO THE MASS PIKE REGION EARLY SATURDAY
    EVENING...AND THEN REACH SOUTHWEST NEW HAMPSHIRE BEFORE MIDNIGHT.

    THE HEAVIEST SNOW SHOULD FALL SATURDAY NIGHT INTO SUNDAY MORNING. IT
    IS VERY POSSIBLE THAT SNOWFALL RATES WILL REACH 3 INCHES PER HOUR AT
    TIMES. GUSTY NORTHEAST WINDS MAY CREATE AREAS OF BLOWING AND
    DRIFTING SNOW WITH POOR VISIBILITY.

    NEAR BLIZZARD CONDITIONS ARE POSSIBLE IN THE HARTFORD...WORCESTER...
    BOSTON AND PROVIDENCE AREAS DURING THE HEIGHT OF THIS STORM.

    BY THE TIME THE SNOW TAPERS OFF SUNDAY AFTERNOON...TOTAL SNOWFALL
    SHOULD AVERAGE 8 TO 14 INCHES. THE HIGHEST TOTALS ARE LIKELY TO
    OCCUR FROM THE HILLS OF NORTHEAST CONNECTICUT TO THE INTERSTATE 95
    CORRIDOR BETWEEN PROVIDENCE...BOSTON AND THE NEW HAMPSHIRE BORDER.

    SOMEWHAT LOWER TOTALS OF 4 TO 8 INCHES CAN BE EXPECTED ON NANTUCKET
    AND THE OUTER PORTION OF CAPE COD...WHERE RAIN MAY MIX IN FOR A TIME
    SUNDAY MORNING.

    THIS IS A POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS WINTER STORM. TRAVEL MAY BE
    SERIOUSLY IMPACTED BY THE COMBINATION OF POOR VISIBILITY AND
    SLIPPERY ROADS. PLAN TO HAVE TRAVEL COMPLETED BY LATE SATURDAY
    AFTERNOON.
