..A Winter Weather Advisory is now in effect from 2 AM through 6 PM Saturday for the entire NWS Taunton County Warning Area except for Southern New Hampshire and Nantucket Island. In the advisory area, 4-6 inches of snow is expected with isolated higher amounts of 7-8″ possible in a few locations along and south of the Mass Pike. Outside of the Advisory area, 1-3″ of snow is expected in Southern New Hampshire. On Nantucket Island, 1-3″ of snow and sleet is expected as snow may mix with sleet and rain on Nantucket. Snow will start in western areas after midnight and before daybreak in eastern areas lasting ending from west to east in the early to mid-afternoon timeframe across the area..
