  inch. If these higher amounts were to occur a localized area
  of scattered power outages would be possible.

* WHERE...Northern Connecticut, Rhode Island and Southeast
  Massachusetts.

* WHEN...Mainly Saturday evening through Sunday afternoon.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Heavy snow develops Saturday evening,
  changes to a period of freezing rain and sleet in most
  locations after midnight. A period of plain rain is expected
  across southern Rhode Island and Southeast Massachusetts early
  Sunday morning, but temperatures plunging through the 20s by
  mid afternoon Sunday will result in a flash freeze and roads
  becoming icy. Any mixed precipitation will end as a period of
  snow Sunday afternoon. Travel will be very difficult and
  hazardous Saturday night through Sunday afternoon, along with
  poor visibility at times.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...
