DOT warns about icy conditions
The Rhode Island Department of Transportation is advising drivers about traveling on the roads on Saturday afternoon and night.
Forecasters are predicting an end to the rain in the morning and then turning to freezing drizzle, with temps expected to drop more than 30 degrees over the course of the day and into the night.
Already windy conditions will increase and a flash freeze is anticipated.
Maintenance crews will be treating the roads, but drivers are asked to reduce their speeds in the icy conditions.
