Fast moving storm system will add to the nearly 29" of snow we've had already this Winter Season at T.F. Green Airport in Warwick. Worcester has had nearly 44" so far for the season too.

WINTER STORM WARNING for Southern New England. Snow coming down 1 to 2" per hour at times, mixing with and/or changing to rain along the coast, before ending around sunrise Sunday. Temps will rise above freezing Sunday with sunshine.

Total accumulations: 4-8" from Providence and points north and west, 3-5" with mixing along the I-95 corridor, a little less 1-3" along the immediate coast and islands.

After this system moves out, some rain showers are possible at times next week, but the bigger story there is the potential for record high temperatures mid-week!

Temperatures on Tuesday away from the water are forecast to reach nearly 60. Then an even milder surge of air could break the Record High that currently stands for Providence going back to 1930 when it was 59 degrees. I'm forecasting 65!
