Thursday morning snow less than 2 inches: Will cause difficult commute

At Providence, snow is possible Thu 3:00am–2:00pm, possibly beginning as rain before changing to snow by 7:00am. The timing of the precipitation will make the morning commute difficult due to slippery road surfaces, especially as ice forms during the transition from rain to snow.

Several cities in RI and nearby MA have announced parking bans; check local information for updates.
