Warwick, RI — Snowfall will likely only be a few inches Monday, but it’ll be falling during the morning commute, so give yourself extra time to clear off the car and get to work safely — and take care coming home, too.

The National Weather Service forecast calls for high winds throughout the night, 11 to 17 mph becoming 6 to 9 mph after midnight. Winds could gust as high as 31 mph.

Snow is expected to begin to fall in RI between 5 a.m. and 7 a.m. Monday, and accumulate to 3 to 6 inches. According to the NWS’s most likely snowfall forecast for the area, much of Kent County will receive 2 inches of snow.

Temperatures are expected to fall into the 20s again in the early evening, creating the possibility of a flash freeze during the afternoon commute.
