This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for northern Connecticut, all of
Massachusetts except Berkshire County, and Rhode Island.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight.

Areas of fog expected to develop tonight. Low risk for patchy dense
fog after midnight into Saturday morning.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday.

We will need to monitor rising water levels across southern New
England into early next week. Much, if not all, of our snowpack
has, or will have, melted this weekend. There is still much more
snowpack upstream, over northern new England, that will push into the
headwaters and head downstream. Some river levels could approach
action stage, especially along the lower Connecticut River.


Spotter activation is not expected at this time.
