WARWICK, R.I. — There’s only three days left in the New Year, and if you’re working through them, this morning’s commute is going to be a tough one, and police are warning of an official – seeming note that’s just an overly aggressive marketing tactic.

Snowy weather The National Weather Service is forecasting a chance of snow between 8 a.m. and 11 a.m.,, then rain. Today’s high will be near 43, with a southeast wind 5 to 11 mph, and gusts as high as 23 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100 percent. New snow accumulation of less than a half inch is possible.

More rain and snow is likely before 10 p.m., then a chance of snow between 10 p.m. and 1 a.m. It’ll be breezy, with a south wind 10 to 15 mph becoming west 18 to 23 mph in the evening. Winds could gust as high as 50 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60 percent. New snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible.

So take it easy out there coming and going to work.

mail-marketingOverzealous marketers Warwick Police warn that if you find one of these stickers on your door (see attached photo), you DID NOT miss a delivery from UPS USPS or FEDEX. These tags are being left on people’s doors to get you to call the phone number so they can try to sell you something. Nothing criminal here, just an over zealous marketing style, police report.
