    HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK
    NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE TAUNTON MA
    440 PM EST MON DEC 29 2008

    THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR NORTHERN
    CONNECTICUT...EASTERN MASSACHUSETTS...NORTHEASTERN
    MASSACHUSETTS...SOUTHEASTERN MASSACHUSETTS...SOUTHERN NEW
    HAMPSHIRE...NORTHERN RHODE ISLAND AND SOUTHERN RHODE ISLAND.

    .DAY ONE...TONIGHT.

    A COLD FRONT WILL BRING A BRIEF BAND OF SCATTERED SNOW SHOWERS TO
    THE REGION LATE TONIGHT. BRIEF LOCALIZED HEAVIER SNOW SQUALLS ARE
    ALSO POSSIBLE...WHICH COULD BRING A QUICK HALF INCH OF SNOW TO SOME
    LOCATIONS. ITS POSSIBLE THAT SOME ROAD SURFACES MAY HAVE A COATING
    OF SNOW ON THEM FOR THE TUESDAY MORNING RUSH HOUR.

    .DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY.

    A FAST MOVING LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL LIKELY BRING 3 TO 6 INCHES OF
    SNOW TO MUCH OF THE REGION DURING THE DAY WEDNESDAY. SLIGHTLY LESSER
    AMOUNTS MAY FALL ON THE IMMEDIATE SOUTH COAST AND ISLANDS...IF SOME
    OF THE PRECIPITATION FALLS AS A PERIOD OF RAIN. THERE IS STILL SOME
    UNCERTAINTY ON THE TRACK. IF THE LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM TRACKS A BIT
    FURTHER NORTH THAN EXPECTED...A PERIOD OF RAIN WOULD OCCUR ACROSS
    MUCH OF RHODE ISLAND AND SOUTHEAST MASSACHUSETTS. THIS WOULD CUT DOWN
    ON THE EXPECTED SNOW ACCUMULATIONS.

    THE SYSTEM IS A QUICK MOVER AND MOST OF THE SNOW SHOULD HAVE COME TO
    AN END BY EARLY EVENING. THE EXCEPTION MAY BE THE OUTER-CAPE WHERE
    OCEAN EFFECT SNOW SHOWERS MAY BRING SOME ADDITIONAL LIGHT SNOW
    ACCUMULATIONS WEDNESDAY NIGHT.

    IN ADDITION...STRONG WINDS WILL DEVELOP LATE WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON AND
    PARTICULARLY DURING THE EVENING HOURS. A WIND ADVISORY MAY BE
    REQUIRED FOR MUCH OF THE REGION. THIS ALSO COULD RESULT IN SOME
    BLOWING SNOW AND REDUCED VISIBILITIES FROM WHAT FELL DURING THE
    AFTERNOON.

    FINALLY...WIND CHILLS WILL LIKELY FALL TO BETWEEN 0 AND 10 BELOW
    ZERO LATE WEDNESDAY NIGHT AND NEW YEARS MORNING AS VERY COLD AIR
    WORKS INTO THE REGION.

    THERE IS A MODERATE PROBABILITY OF A SIGNIFICANT STORM AFFECTING THE
    REGION LATE FRIDAY INTO THE FIRST PART OF SATURDAY.
    HOWEVER...PRECIPITATION TYPES ARE HIGHLY UNCERTAIN AND WILL DEPEND ON
    THE EXACT TRACK.
