NEW: Storm Moving Up Coast Could Dump 6-12 Inches On Rhode Island

A March mess on the way
It looks like a typical March mess with some spots getting heavy, wet snow, some seeing snow and rain mixed and others heavy wind-driven rain. Everyone should experience strong, gusty winds with attendant power outage potential. Coastal areas should watch out for flooding, heavy surf and, of course, beach erosion.
Details, as usual, are hard to pinpoint right now but heavy, wet snow is likely from Providence to the north and west, especially at higher elevations. Accumulations could be in the 6”-12” range. Lesser amounts should accumulate toward the south and east as rain and sleet get into the mix. Any shift of the storm track farther south and east would pull the heavy snow line in that direction. Likewise a track closer to the coast would push the rain/sleet mix north and west of the capital city. Northeast winds will howl 25-50mph with higher gusts.
