AM WEATHER UDPATE: The Blizzard of ‘13 Not Over—Prepare For More Snow

Saturday, February 09, 2013

 

As the sun comes up over Rhode Island, the Blizzard of '13 is still with us after a howling night of hurricane-force winds and driving snow.

The center of the Blizzard of ’13 will be just east of Cape Cod and Nantucket this morning and moving slowly away from the area during the day. The incredibly intense storm with whiteout snows and hurricane force wind gusts will wind down slowly as the day progresses. But snow bands will continue to dump a few more inches accumulation during the morning and perhaps early afternoon but at

a somewhat reduced rate over what occurred overnight. It still looks like the storm totals for snow accumulation will be on average around 2 feet, plus or minus 6 inches.

Check the latest on RI's power outages, here. 

Very cold air being drawn into the departing storm will keep readings well below freezing today with lows tonight expected to be in the single numbers to low teens. This may well create additional hardship for those without power. Sunshine is expected Sunday with highs reaching close to freezing.
