PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — The first real snowstorm of the season is officially in the rearview mirror.

The storm brought several inches of accumulations overnight into Tuesday morning, which made for slow and slippery driving conditions during the commute.

Plows have been out clearing the main roads, but some side streets may still be covered in snow or slush. Chief Meteorologist Tony Petrarca said there could be icy spots later Tuesday night as temperatures fall and the wet roadways freeze over.

Many school districts shifted to distance learning on Tuesday, while others had a delay or a full-on snow day.

The storm also impacted air travel. Our Pinpoint Flight Tracker shows some delays at T.F. Green and Logan airports.

Parking bans were issued in most cities and towns except for Providence. Mayor Brett Smiley said the decision to not enforce a parking ban was because it’s “an inconvenience for residents.”

“Parking bans are very difficult,” he said. “They’re difficult for people who don’t have dedicated parking, and it really has an impact on businesses.”

“I think it was the right decision,” he said.

Smiley urged city residents to sign up for the emergency notification system CodeRED to get important weather updates in the future.

Many people were out clearing snow from their driveways, walkways and vehicles, either since they had to or because they were trying to make some extra money. Those who clear snow for a living told 12 News they were glad to have some work after a quiet winter so far.

“It was heavy,” said Sean Harold, who has a snow-clearing business. “You see some people trying to pick it up, but when it’s wet like that — my thing is I push it. Use it like a pusher. Save your back. Don’t hurt your back.”

“It’s not that bad. It’s pretty powdery and it’s easy to move, so I’m glad I’m out here early getting it done,” Theresa Paopao of Providence said.
