NEW: Winter Storm Thursday Midday Update

Thursday, February 13, 2014

 

Central Massachusetts could receive upwards of a foot of snow, mixed with some sleet and rain, by the end of the day Thursday.

The storm centered over eastern North Carolina this morning will track very close to Cape Cod late tonight. With the changeover taking place gradually, first along the coast later this morning then progressing inland during the afternoon, heavy accumulated snow will become a slushy, slippery, sloppy mess by the evening commute.

Estimated snow accumulations before the changeover are upwards of a foot in the Worcester area, 6-10" in Northwestern Rhode Island, 4-8" in and around Providence then dropping off to 3-5" around Westerly and 2-4" in the Newport area. Those totals could get higher or lower depending on the timing of the change to sleet and rain. There could be a brief change back to lighter snow late tonight but any further accumulation would be light by comparison.
