Wintry Mix Predicted For Busy Travel Day Before Thanksgiving

Nov 25, 2014

Thanksgiving travelers are in for a messy drive Wednesday.  A winter storm advisory has been issued for the state, as a storm moving up from the south is expected to dump snow and rain on the Ocean State.  National Weather service meteorologist Alan Dunham said if you can hit the road today, you’ll be better off. The entire state will see rain and snow, about 1-2 inches, but the northern region will see even more.

“Could be up 2-3 inches, but there is a possibility it could end up with upwards of 6 inches or so up in those areas… northwest Providence County and western Kent,” said Dunham.

The snows are expected to taper off through Wednesday night.  Thanksgiving day will be clear, but cold, with temperatures in the 30’s.
