So, prepare your day to end with snow. In fact the afternoon trek home from school and work could be tricky one…especially north and west of Providence where the snow could be falling heavily at times.

That snow will continue through the Monday evening commute…really snarling things up.

1-3″ of snow is possible north and west of Providence, which could make for a tricky afternoon/evening commute. A coating to 1″ is possible south of Providence, mainly on the grass where it will be a little milder.

Expect most of the snow to be winding down by 8pm Monday, then skies clear overnight.
