Blizzard conditions likely for most areas

Latest snow forecast, still some subtle changes to this are possible as the storm passes to our east Thursday

Let's start with a look at the headlines as it relates to Thursday's storm:

By definition, the National Weather Service issues a Blizzard Warning "for winter storms with sustained or frequent winds of 35 mph or higher with considerable falling and/or blowing snow that frequently reduces visibility to 1/4 of a mile or less. These conditions are expected to prevail for a minimum of 3 hours."

Thursday's storm will bring these conditions to most of the area at times. Right now just SOME of the area is currently under a Blizzard Warning:

But don't let that fool you. We ALL will see heavy snow & powerful wind at times, making travel difficult to nearly impossible. If you HAVE to travel Thursday morning, it is best to get it done by 9 a.m.:

The intensity of the snow will ramp up fast Thursday morning AND so will the wind:

The snow forecast is impressive, especially for areas across northern RI and the Interstate 95 corridor from Providence to Boston and west through Worcester.

Could we see these numbers shift a bit? Absolutely.

Remember, a storm of this size and strength has a greater margin of error than a typical winter storm so stay tuned for the updates and changes, StormTeam10 will have you covered through the duration of the storm.
