NWS: Another winter storm bears down on North Fork

Winter storm watch has been issued for Greenbrier County

"The storm has the potential for blizzard-like conditions and a snowfall rate of one to three inches per hour". Rain will change to snow during the predawn hours.

High winds are expected along the coast, southeast and eastern portions of the state, and minor coastal flooding on east ocean-exposed shorelines.

A winter weather advisory for snow means periods of snow will cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for snow covered roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving.

As of now it looks like snow develops late Monday night and continues into Tuesday before ending later Tuesday night.

A Winter storm watch has been issued for Greenbrier County from this evening through Monday afternoon. Forecast models are coming into agreement bringing this storm closer to the southern New England coast which could means accumulating snows for much of MA with higher amounts to the east, though track will be critical. With the snow of relatively "wet" nature, there would be heightened concern of tree damage and power outages if snow of that nature occurs.

There's a slight chance of snow before 2 p.m. Monday, then rain likely between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m., then rain and snow likely after 5 p.m. - just in time for the evening commute, according to the weather service. If you must travel, keep an extra flashlight, food and water in your vehicle in case of an emergency.
