Celebrate the return of IAP with a snowstorm

After a sunny, lukewarm day on Thursday, we welcome the first snowstorm of 2022. A winter storm watch is placed for Rhode Island and parts of eastern Massachusetts later tonight, leading into early Friday. Commuting during the Friday AM is hazardous due to reduced visibility and snow accumulation. Watch out for icy paths when you drop off your COVID tests! 

This Nor’easter is set to bring large amounts of snow and ice across the country, spanning from the mid-South across West Virginia, the mid-Atlantic states, and New England through Thursday and Friday. While the temperature remains numbingly cold, the weather recovers from the snow storm during the weekend with two mostly sunny and cloudy days.
