Snow Saturday possible, but no accumulation likely

This forecast has been updated:

At Providence, precipitation is likely today (Sat) 11:00am through tomorrow (Sun) 6:00am, beginning as rain and possibly changing to snow or rain-snow-sleet mix before changing back to rain.

Warm temperatures several degrees above freezing should prevent accumulation, with some potential for a fraction of an inch before ending, but the most likely scenario is all rain.

The median accumulation forecast in the city is zero, with probabilities 18% for at least 0.1 in and near 0% for 1 in.

Greater accumulation in the 1-4 inch range is possible far to the north of the metropolitan area into northern MA where a Winter Weather Advisory has been posted effective Sat 7:00am-Sun 7:00am.
