(WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE)

.....Hello all

...Dont pack the snow shovels away just yet.  Winter Storm Watch is now in 
effect for much of Southern New England for significant snowfall amounts 
between 4 to 7inches of snow for Monday into Monday night.  Snow should begin 
in western RI around the midday hours the spread east.  What makes this storm 
another problem is that the heavist snow should fall between the drive home 
commute, so take it easy on the roads this evening.  So areas could see 
between 5 to 10inches due to higher elevation.

SKYWARN activation will be below self activation at this time, will keep 
everyone posted.  I will send another email by 8pm tonight to update this 
winter storm.
