Weather service declares statewide blizzard watch
Snow could begin falling in earnest by early this evening, at 2 to 3 inches an hour during the height of the storm, and add up to 8 to 15 inches before it's all over.



01:00 AM EST on Saturday, February 11, 2006
BY EDWARD FITZPATRICK and JACK PERRY
Journal Staff Writer projo.com staff writer



Assistant manager Keith Gracie heard this weekend's forecast just as he was about to close the Home Depot in North Kingstown last night.

"Holy Christmas!" he said.

Exactly.

It will look a lot like Christmas tonight, when a storm is expected to begin blanketing Rhode Island in 8 to 15 inches of snow.

The National Weather Service issued a blizzard watch for the entire state last night, saying snow was expected to start falling between 6 and 8 tonight. Meteorologists said the dangerous northeaster would bring heavy snow and strong winds to Southern New England.

"It's still a developing situation," meteorologist Charlie Foley said. "But I think it will be a significant storm."

At Home Depot, Gracie didn't need Foley to tell him a storm was coming. The store started the day with 50 snowblowers in stock; when it closed, there were just 2.

Snowblower sales had slumped during a winter season that seemed more like the Cayman Islands than Rhode Island. But the store made up ground in a hurry yesterday.

Gracie explained that snowblowers usually sell earlier in the year. At this point, no new machines are being shipped, and snowblowers have been deemed "clearance product" at reduced prices.

Now, it looks like those investments are about to pay off.

Tracy McCormick, another meteorologist at the weather service in Taunton, said, "It looks pretty likely that Southern New England will see a winter storm this weekend because more of the forecast models are coming into agreement."

Low pressure over the Carolinas this afternoon is expected to intensify into a winter storm as it passes about 75 miles southeast of Nantucket tomorrow morning, the weather service says.

Tonight, the temperature in Providence is expected to be in the low to mid-20s, while it should increase slightly tomorrow into the mid- to high 20s.

That means the snow should be fluffy and easier to shovel, at least in the Providence area, but winds of 30 mph, gusting to 40 mph or higher along the coast, will blow it around a lot, McCormick said. "It will be easy to lift, but the wind is going to blow it back" onto cleared surfaces, she said.

The weather service recommends staying off the roads. The snow could fall as much as 2 to 3 inches per hour at the height of the storm, with the possibility of thunder.

"You should get whatever you need done by Saturday afternoon, because it should start Saturday evening, and overnight looks like near-blizzard conditions are possible, with visibility going down to almost zero with heavy snowfall and gusty northeast winds making travel difficult," McCormick said.

If the storm brings as much snow as expected, Providence and other areas could get as much snow this weekend as they had in all of January, when 6.9 inches of snow fell in Providence.

Earlier yesterday, the weather service had issued a blizzard watch for coastal Rhode Island and the south coast of Massachusetts only. But last night, the blizzard watch was extended to all of Rhode Island and "roughly everything east of Worcester" in Massachusetts, Foley said.

Foley explained that a blizzard watch means a big storm is possible. A blizzard warning means the storm is imminent or in progress. If a blizzard warning is issued today, the message will be clear: Ladies and gentlemen, start your snowblowers.

Unless you lived at Lake Tahoe for a while,you don't really know snow.I was a snowboard intructor at Kirkwood for 2 seasons, and I lived on the north shore of Tahoe(Incline Village) I used to wake up to 2-4 ft of snow.I used to have nightmares about cannibilism..obscure Donner Party referance

Good times!

ETA:Rocky Mountain dwellers would know snow as well.

No snow in the flat lands of So. Calif. It is so warm in the San Gabriel Valley(10 miles east of Los Angeles) my backyard thermometer in the shade says 72ºF. In the direct sunlight it is probably in the 80s. The only thing we got that is exciting is the 2 brush fires in Orange County(Anaheim Hills) and in Malibu that is pretty much under control. I think were will be heading into spring with no further cold weather.

Hasn't started here yet and they're calling for 20 inches in my area.


Hate this crap.
Anyone else here remember the Blizzard of '78? That's the measuring stick used today in regard to storms. I was a kid...barely in Jr. High. It was the best week of my life! We had snowball fights on Interstate 95, Sledding until your toes were so cold you couldn't feel them, and moms making hot chocolate CONSTANTLY.
It was Christmas in February, that year. At least for us kids. The grown ups were not amused.
I remember the NG coming in, landing a helicopter in a baseball field near my house to medevac the old lady up the street to the hospital during a stroke. THAT was THE coolest thing I'd ever seen, as a kid.
Well, that and my crazy old man threatening to take his shotgun and go rabbit hunting in the middle of metropolitan Providence when the food stocks started to get low!
Think I ate more SPAM in that week than allowed by the FDA.
