PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Rhode Island may receive its most significant snowfall so far this season as a winter storm bears down on the Northeast.
The National Weather Service says the state can expect to receive up to six inches of snow Saturday as the large weather system moves across the Ocean State.
The storm is expected to hit the area around lunchtime Saturday, bringing patchy fog and snow.
Authorities say drivers should use caution when venturing out, though the storm is not expected to cause high winds. In advance of the storm Pawtucket, North Kingstown, Cumberland and Portsmouth have announced street parking restrictions for Saturday.
Temperatures are expected to remain in the 20s and 30s during the weekend.
