EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — The sun is now shining down on Southern New England, just hours after a cold front dumped a couple of inches of snow on the region.
A Winter Weather Advisory for nearly all of Southern New England expired around noon Wednesday.
Temperatures are now nearly 30 degrees cooler than they were 24 hours ago. Roughly 2-4 inches of snow fell overnight and into Wednesday afternoon, and, according to the Pinpoint Weather Team, Burrillville received the most.
Several school districts in Massachusetts and a handful of private schools in Rhode Island opted for a delayed start time, while Foster-Glocester and Scituate decided to cancel school altogether.
Temperatures were far too warm for snow to accumulate on the roadways, making it an easy cleanup for the Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT).
More than a dozen parking bans remain in effect across the state while crews work to clear any remaining snow.
The morning commute was slow-going at the storm’s peak due to poor visibility on the roadways.

With the sun now out, most of the roadways are clear, though drivers are still urged to use caution since some areas may begin to freeze over Wednesday evening.
There are still a handful of delays at T.F. Green International Airport. If you’re flying out this afternoon, be sure to keep an eye on when your flight will be departing by using the Pinpoint Flight Tracker »
