PROVIDENCE, RI (WPRI) -- A fast-moving winter storm will bring a round of accumulating snow to Southern New England Saturday.
According to Eyewitness News Meteorologist Michelle Muscatello, the snow should start around mid-day and continue into Saturday night, making travel difficult.
The storm is projected to produce the biggest snowfall totals of the season so far and cities and towns are prepping for its arrival.
Parking bans have been issued for public streets in multiple communities. For an up-to-date list of parking bans, closings and delays throughout Southern New England, visit our pinpoint closing network page.
Warwick Mayor Scott Avedesian told Eyewitness News his city has budgeted $430,000 for snow removal. So far, the city has used about $15,000 to buy salt and sand.
As of last week, Warwick was way under budget, having spent only $100,000.
Avedesian says this coming storm will cost more than a weekday storm because of overtime pay.
