Snow, wind intensity drops off early Thursday
Here are the latest headlines of the nor'easter and coastal storm:
Rain picked up after sunset Wednesday for most locations west of the I-95 corridor, transiting to snow in Rhode Island around 7 p.m.
It took a while for the inland higher elevations to see the snow stick, but once it did those areas picked up snow quickly.
Power outage numbers are rising as the pasty, wet snow sticks to trees and power lines. Gusty northeast wind speeds will diminish slowly overnight into Thursday morning.
The steady snow will continue through roughly midnight, with the storm peeling away by 2 a.m. to 3 a.m. Thursday. The intensity of the snow (and some rain) will vary overnight, but mostly it will end before the morning commute time Thursday.
As ground temperatures are still warm and pavement will be wet, more of the accumulation should stick to the grass rather than the roads.
