A few passing showers between midnight and 3am…then skies clearing before sunrise Friday
Most of Friday “daytime” ends up dry, but rain will arrives near sunset. There is a chance that some wet snow will mix with in with the rain northwest of route I-295 in northern Rhode Island late Friday night into the pre-dawn hours Saturday morning.
FRIDAY MORNING: A sunny start, then increasing clouds
FRIDAY EVENING 8:00PM: Widespread rain arrives
While the heaviest of the rain will likely fall on Saturday morning, Saturday afternoon won’t be great with highs only in the upper 40s! Gusts from the northwest of around 30 mph will make it FEEL like it’s in the 30s for a good part of the day.
