After a warm weekend, with highs in the sixties, residents woke up to sleet, and icy windshields.

The National Weather Service reports that temperatures dropped into the low thirties overnight, with just under a half inch of precipitation measured at T.F. Green Airport.

And though the skies have cleared up temperatures are expected to hover in the forties Wednesday, with lows in the twenties.  Only slightly warmer weather is predicted for the rest of the week.

At least it’s not another polar vortex.
