Icy Conditions for Northwestern RI

The National Weather Service has expanded the Winter Storm Warning, mainly for ice, further south and east to include Windham County in northeast Connecticut, northwest Providence County in Rhode Island, and essentially the rest of interior Massachusetts west and north of route 128.

Temperatures along the coast will rise above freezing by midday but much of the interior may remain below freezing for most of the storm. The greatest concern is the potential for significant ice accretion. We see a high risk of one half to three-quarter inch ice accretion across northern Connecticut, northwest Rhode Island, and interior Massachusetts north and west of route 128 including the Mass Pike, route 2, and I-91 corridors.
