Charles Foley of the National Weather service says, that Southern New Englanders should prepare for the first good snowfall of the season.

"I think we’re looking at the first plow-able snow event this year, we expect snow to begin around 9 to 10 o’clock this morning, ending around 5 this afternoon,” said Foley.

Two to four inches of snow are predicted to accumulate, and could prove to be a problem for the morning commute.

The National Weather service says the cold weather is likely to persist, so Rhode Islanders should get used to the sight of snow.
