A second storm of the week is headed toward New England and will dump a bit more snow onto the area on Saturday.
The National Weather Service is predicting that East Providence and most of Rhode Island will get about 2 inches of snow in the storm that is expected to start around noon today and end late tonight.
Other forecasters are predicting as much as 4 inches in the area. Patchy fog is expected to worsen visibility as temperatures warm slightly in the afternoon, topping out around 34.
The rest of the weekend and early week is looking better — though cooler. Expect partly sunny skies with temperatures in the low-30s Sunday and Monday, with overnight lows dipping into the teens.
New Year's Day should warm a bit, with temperatures topping out in the high-30s under mostly coudy skies.
