As RIPTA begins to resume regular service and RIDOT continues to treat roads, meteorologists predict another wave of snow early Saturday morning.
Lenore Correia is a meteorologist with the National Weather Service; she says snow is expected at around midnight.
“It’s not going to be nearly as bad as it was yesterday,” said Correia, laughing. “Northern Rhode Island might get 2 to 3 inches, but it looks like it’ll be 1 to 2 inches.”
Bob Thompson, also with the National Weather Service, said Thursday’s robust nor’easter produced 8 to 14 inches of accumulation throughout the Ocean State.
Thompson said meteorologists recorded the heaviest accumulation in Northern Providence County.
“We had 14 ½ inches at North Foster, and 14 inches in Burrillville and Smithfield,” said Thompson.
Southern Rhode Island had the least amount of snow.
“Westerly had 8 inches and Block Island had six inches,” added Thompson.
