Minor Accumulations Tonight For Some…

So far the most snow has been in  Northwest Rhode Island with 2 to 2.5 inches in Burrillville, Foster and Glocester….why? …because its colder in the higher elevations there. In other areas, the air is cold enough to snow for many hours, but the ground temperatures (especially the pavement) is too warm, so a lot of melting going on. Bottom line..snowing for many hours in some areas, but very little is sticking. Even though you see the number “3” on the map below, that is mostly limited to the higher elevations of northwest RI. Most accumulations tonight will be on non paved surfaces like grass, shrubs and car tops.
