National Weather Service Taunton MA
410 PM EDT Wed Mar 21 2018

A nor`easter is currently southwest of the region, which will bring
widespread snow to the region late today. Snow will begin this
afternoon but not accumulate to much due to warm surface temps and
low level dry air. Heaviest snowfall will likely be across southeast
MA and Rhode Island overnight, where 1 inch per hour snowfall rates
are possible. Snow will continue into Thursday morning, possibly
lingering into Thursday afternoon, but the system will move offshore
by tomorrow night. Overnight lows will range in the upper 20s and
low 30s. Wednesday and Thursday will see afternoon highs in the 40s,
and overnight lows in the 20s.

Canadian high pressure promises to bring fair weather and
unseasonably cool temperatures on Friday and Saturday. Looking to
Sunday and Monday, temperatures will continue to be cool but there
is the chance for snow and rain.
