“The morning commute is not going to be fun.  It’s currently snowing in Providence; we have a winter weather advisory for Providence itself.  To the northwest, for people coming in from there, Foster and the northwest hills of Rhode Island, we have a winter storm warning in effect.”

Dunham says by this afternoon the precipitation will have changed to all rain for most of the state.  He adds that many roads will still be slushy for the afternoon commute.
