PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Drivers are urged to use caution, especially on untreated roadways, as another round of wintry weather impacts Southern New England.
A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for our area with light to moderate snowfall expected to continue on and off through Friday evening. Some sleet could mix in at times.
The forecast calls for 3-6″ of gradual accumulations across our area over a 30- to 36-hour period. The southern and eastern parts of Rhode Island have seen the most so far.
The northern part of the state, for the most part, has only seen about an inch or two, but will most likely end up with 3-4″ by the time the snowfall winds down Friday evening.
Our Flight Tracker shows some delays and cancellations at T. F. Green Airport.
In addition to slushy and icy roadways, drivers should be wary of lowered visibility during heavier periods of snowfall.
Many cities and towns have parking bans in place. Public schools are out for February break.
