A coastal storm will bring light rain and some snow to the area tonight. This certainly isn’t going to be a major storm, but some slick roads and reduced visibility is possible from the snow.
A Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect for northwest Rhode Island. Up to an inch of snow is possible in the areas in purple. This could lead to slippery roads so use caution if you are on the roads tonight or early tomorrow morning.
Areas north and west of Providence will see mainly snow Sunday evening. Areas south and east of the city should stay with mainly rain (some snow). There’s not a lot of cold air for this system to work with and temperatures will remain above the freezing mark in most areas with this storm.
Wet snow continues Sunday night into Monday morning for inland areas especially. More in the way of mixing is possible over the rest of the area.
Any precipitation could start to wind down between 4 and 8am.

We’re expecting a coating to 1″ mainly on grassy surfaces north and west of Providence; although some roads could become snow-covered in extreme northwest Rhode Island where it will be a little colder (Burrillville, Glocester, Foster). While most roadways will likely stay wet, visibility will be reduced at night with snow falling.
Monday will feature mainly cloudy skies with chilly (but seasonable) temperatures in the 30s.
