Good Morning.

Expect rain showers to develop on Wednesday…starting in the morning and continuing in the afternoon. Some spots of light freezing drizzle for a few hours north and west of Providence with a light icy glaze on roads and walkways, but rising to above freezing later in the morning. A Winter Weather Advisory (purple) is in effect for early Wednesday morning.

WEDNESDAY MORNING FORECAST 5:00AM

Brief period of “freezing drizzle” very early Wednesday A.M. north and west of Providence. Light icy glaze possible before temps rise above freezing with rain.

WEDNESDAY MORNING FORECAST 8:00AM Scattered rain showers, breezy and milder

WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON FORECAST 12:00PM Periods of rain, windy and milder

WEDNESDAY EVENING FORECAST 6:00PM Periods of rain, windy and milder, evening commute will be wet but not icy

Small Craft Advisory Wednesday

Watching Friday Morning, Snow Likely

We are seeing indications of a “moderate” snowfall by Friday morning. Snow starts very late Thursday night (after midnight) and continues into the morning commute Friday. This is still a few days out, but the early call points to a potential 3″ to 5″ snowfall. Again…..this is a first early look. Check back over the next few days. The system looks fast moving, with a snow duration around 6 hours. Some moderate accumulations and slippery roads, but a “major” snowstorm is not expected. Drier weather returns Friday evening and night.
