Storm Will Ease Saturday With Some Improvements.

Good morning from Meteorologist Pete Mangione:

The High Wind Warning has been cancelled for most of our area, it has been replaced by a windy advisory which is in effect until 5PM.  Winds could still gust to 40-45 mph inland, and 50-55 mph along the south coast.  As of around 6AM, there are still about 100 thousand without power in Rhode Island.  It’s possible it may be too windy for all power restorations to be done today, stay tuned for updates.

Here is more information from Chief meteorologist Tony Petrarca

Winds remain gusty thru Saturday, especially near the coast, but not as powerful as Friday evening.


Despite the weather drying out Saturday, river levels will continue to rise..River Flood Warnings in effect for the following rivers

Some lingering light rain and snow showers early Saturday morning. Very windy, especially along the shore where winds may gust 45-55 mph
