Wintery Weather Hits Rhode Island

Dec 9, 2013

The calendar still says autumn but it sure is looking like winter out there. You’re waking up to a mixture of snow and sleet which may make the morning commute a challenge. National Weather Service meteorologist Hayden Frank says the afternoon commute will be much easier.

"We’ll see a transition from the snow and sleet to rain as we work through Monday morning but the Monday morning commute will be messy because we will be dealing with a mixture of snow and sleet at the time," said Frank on Sunday.

Rhode Island is under a winter weather advisory until 10 am Monday.  A winter weather advisory is issued when a significant winter storm or hazardous winter weather is imminent or occurring.

According to the National Weather Service, more snowfall is expected tomorrow.
