It’ll be cold and dry for most of the afternoon with stubborn clouds remaining camped out overhead and rain chances remaining low for most of the day.
This evening and overnight tonight? That’s a whole different story as we track some heavy widespread rain on the way.
For most of the day today, we’ll see gray skies with just a few breaks of sunshine peppered in.
Rain arrives later this evening/tonight and will continue into the overnight hours. Some of the rain could be heavy at times.
Rainfall totals by Monday morning could range between a half inch to 1.5″.
Cold air will try to work in and flip rain over to snow and ice late morning and early afternoon on Monday.
Lighter rain/drizzle for Monday morning before a change to snow by late morning and early afternoon (from northwest to southeast for the changeover). Temperatures will be marginal for snow accumulations (32-35°), so any accumulations will be mainly on the grass/decks/car tops through Monday afternoon for most of the area. Some small accumulations are possible on the roads in northern RI (Burrillville, North Smithfield, Glocester) by Monday evening…1-2″ possible there. Most of the snow is done by 7pm Monday.
Monday night into Tuesday we’ll dry out and see some clearer conditions. We don’t see quiet weather stick around for very long though. We’ll hit repeat and see an almost identical system cruise across our area Wednesday into Thursday.
