More Snow in Store For RI?
Don't put away those shovels yet. Much of RI could see significant accumulation.
Forecasters are keeping their eyes on yet another storm system that may drop more snow on Barrington.
Officials at the National Weather Service and Accuweather say a storm system is heading toward the East Coast and could shift north, impacting Rhode Island Wednesday night into Friday.
Initial predictions are uncertain, but forecasters say the storm may bring heavy snowfall and high winds, especially Thursday night. Accuweather was projecting anywhere between 3 to 6 inches for Rhode Island as of late Tuesday afternoon.
The mixture of snow could be heavy and wet, combining with high winds, possibly resulting in power outages and downed trees. There may be a chance of coastal flooding Thursday and Friday during high tides.
