Weather Authority: Calmer and cooler conditions on Wednesday

Weather Authority: Calmer and cooler conditions on Wednesday

"The most significant Pacific storm to pass over the area brought 11.4 cm of snow beginning during the night of (March) 7, turning to rain (6.8 mm) by the afternoon of March 8".

The famous groundhog in NY predicted an early spring, but it sure doesn't look that way in the state.

Thursday looks sunny but with a high of just 44 degrees in Providence.

Tonight's low in the area will plummet into the mid-teens, forecasters said, and northwest winds could gust as high as 30 miles per hour.

The next disturbance approaches Friday morning and will spread a burst of snow over the region during the Friday morning commute.

Prince Philip Health: Why Husband of Queen Elizabeth was Hospitalized
He did not attend a church service last week attended by the monarch because of a hip problem, a royal source said last week. Philip retired from public life previous year but has since appeared several times at royal engagements alongside Elizabeth.

Be sure to allow for some extra time on the roads today, as slick conditions will post a threat especially on bridges and overpasses with colder temperatures and stronger winds in place. Records show that Minneapolis-St Paul International Airport measured nine inches of snow and the northeast area was hit with over 10 inches. Highs will be in the low- to mid-30s.

DeWald said the cold conditions and the rain-snow mix in early April are far from unusual for the area, which had been known to get snow as late as early May. That's the biggest April snowstorm in the city since 1982, and the 7th-biggest April snowstorm of all-time, the National Weather Service said.

Temperatures are now a mix of upper 20s and low 30s. Winds could gust as high as 36 miles per hour. Many spots could wake up to low temps in the single digits.

The timing of this storm will be Wednesday night into Thursday night. There's a possibility that Monday and Tuesday will also see snow but it's a little too early to know how that storm will play out.
