Weather Now

It will be a cold and dry night with mostly clear skies and overnight lows falling to 28° to 32° by dawn. Increasing clouds Thursday. It stays dry throughout the daylight hours, with rain showers developing Thursday evening–after 4PM— as an area of low pressure moves in.

THURSDAY MORNING: Increasing clouds but staying dry

THURSDAY AFTERNOON: Rain arrives by late day


LATEST SATELLITE AND RADAR IMAGE: We are tracking moisture that stretches from Ohio to Texas that will arrives here by early Thursday evening (after 4pm). Most of this will fall as rain Thursday night. During the late night hours of Thursday, some of that rain may end as a “quick snow shower”. Accumulations are not expected

The latest information indicates that the low will track right over Southern New England. A track like that rarely gives us snow as mild air works into our skies.

THURSDAY 10:00AM: Mostly cloudy but dry.

THURSDAY 7:00PM: Widespread rain likely (Not Snow)

Expect about 1/4″ of rain before it comes to an end 2am Friday. Inland areas could briefly get some wet snow at the tail end of the precipitation, but with no accumulation.

FRIDAY 2:00AM (Late Thursday Night):

BOTTOM LINE, there will be no significant snow Thursday night for Southern New England.

FRIDAY 8:00AM: Clearing skies, dry windy and turning colder

The air takes on a mid-winter feel by Friday, with cold air rushing in on a gusty northwest winds 30-35mph. Temperatures will be in the 30s through the day with wind chills in the 20s!

Despite the low chances for measurable snow this week, it’s not out of the question that we get snow in early to mid November. Last winter’s most significant storm actually came in mid November when 6″ fell. The average first measurable snow occurs is December 1st for Providence.
