Uncertainty about this weekend’s weather continues.
Will it snow and how much? Will it just rain? Will there be a mix in East Providence?
The exact track and strength of the storm moving up the Atlantic coast may not be known for a while yet. But the National Weather Service is forecasting that there is a possibility a winter storm watch will be extended farther south.
Several inches of heavy, wet snow seem possible – raising the specter of downed tree limbs causing scattered power outages and causing slippery driving conditions.
The exact forecast for today calls for a chance of snow before 3 pm, then a chance of rain between 3 and 5 pm, then rain and snow likely after 5 pm with less than a half inch of accumulation possible.
Saturday night will have a mix of rain and snow with a new accumulation of 1 to 2 inches possible.
Sunday could see all snow after 10 am with new precipitation and snow showers into the evening.
