The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for our area from 3 am Friday morning to 4 pm Friday afternoon. See the information below for more detail:

 

  • Locations: All of Rhode Island and Southeast Massachusetts
  • Hazard Types: Heavy snow
  • Snow Accumulations: 6 to 8 inches with some localized pockets of 10 inches
  • Timing: Snow will develop after midnight tonight becoming heavy at times during the morning and into mid-day Friday. Snow will taper off around midafternoon Friday
  • Impacts: Heavy snow will make many roads impassable due to snowfall rates of 1 to 2 inches an hour at times
  • Winds: North 20 to 30 MPH with gusts as high as 55 MPH
  • What you can do to help avoid or minimize any problems encountered:
  • Only travel in an EMERGENCY!!!!!!
  • If you must travel keep an extra flashlight, food, water and warm blankets in your vehicle in case of an emergency
  • Consider turning the heat up in your house a bit higher than normal so that if power is lost it will stay warmer longer
  • Continue to monitor the latest forecasts
  • Obey local parking bans to allow snow removal crews to do their job and keep roads as clear as possible
  • Once the storm subsides please ensure that you comply with the local ordinances requiring the clearing of snow & ice from sidewalks

 

 

A Winter Storm Warning is issued when an average snowfall of 6 inches or more is expected within a 12 hour period, or for 8 inches or more in a 24 hour period. Travel will be slow at best on well treated surfaces, and quite difficult on untreated surfaces.

Also a tremendous need for scholarship support is needed so all Newport youth can participate regardless of ability to pay. A special fund has been set up to support this effort.

We welcome your ideas and support to increase our outreach into the community.
