Snow stops falling; roads, sidewalks still slick

ice and snow take it slow

UNDATED (WPRI) — More snow that fell overnight and colder temperatures have made the roads slicks Friday. Neon signs on the highway cautioned commuters to drive slow due to the ice.

An additional two inches of snow fell in some parts of the region on top of what fell during Thursday’s storm.

The air expected to stay dry throughout the day on Friday, but heavy winds will bring bitter cold to the region. The winds, gusting close to 50 miles per hour in parts of the area, may affect travel plans.

The Block Island ferry service canceled all scheduled ferried for Friday.

Looking ahead to the weekend

According to Eyewitness News Meteorologist TJ Del Santo, Rhode Island could see more snow on Saturday.

Light to moderate snow is expected to develop in the afternoon, continuing in the evening, and ending around midnight.

“I feel confident that we will be seeing some accumulating snow on Saturday.  I think there will be enough to plow and shovel, too. The snow will likely begin to fall Saturday afternoon and Saturday evening.   It should end around midnight Saturday night/Sunday morning,” TJ said.
