Weather Now: Rain and Showers Tonight


Tuesday turned out to be a beautiful day! Many people were out walking around the neighborhood and many more were people playing golf. And why not? With sunshine and highs around 50, it was a pretty perfect late December day.

Overnight, we have the chance for more rain and snow. The difference between Monday night and Tuesday night, however, is with the temperatures. Expect the temps to stay well above freezing in the Providence area…and even in northern Rhode Island where more in the way of snow is expected.

Snow and rain showers are possible later in the evening, but no accumulations are anticipated.

Later in the night, as temperatures cool a bit more, some snow accumulations are possible on grassy surfaces north and west of Providence, but most roads should stay just wet.

Wednesday morning will start out with lingering rain showers in the area….maybe some spotty freezing rain.

The second half of the day should be drier with highs in the upper 30s to lower 40s.

Outside of a spot shower, expect mainly dry conditions for Wednesday afternoon.
