Good Wednesday Morning
Mostly cloudy during the pre-dawn hours as an offshore system grazes our area with very light snow showers and flurries from 3am to 7am, mainly in southern areas and along the shore. With much colder temperatures (19-22 degrees), any light snow may stick to the pavement, but expecting only a dusting. Any untreated surfaces in southern RI and coastal southeast Massachusetts could be a bit slick for the AM commute.

BRIEF SHOT OF RECORD COLD BY LATE WEEK

A small transient piece of the polar vortex breaks away and briefly dives into the northeast United States by later Friday and into Saturday
Low temperatures by 7:00am Saturday, zero to almost 10 degrees below zero. These are actual air temperatures and not wind chills.
WIND CHILL (feel-like temperatures) late Friday night into Saturday will range from 20-30 degrees below zero! It’s likely that wind chill advisories and warnings will be issued during that time.
