Despite reports of flurries this morning, Rhode Island has not had its first official snowfall of the season. National Weather Service meteorologist Stephanie Denton says the center received reports of light flurries, in Northern Rhode Island, the Providence area, and South County.
“However, at the airport, which is where we officially measure for the state there was none reported. So officially there was no snow however many people did see snow,” said Denton. (By the way, that's T.F. Green Airport in Warwick.)
Meteorologist Stephanie Denton says the morning weather was an aberration.
“It was just a very cold air mass that moved across the area, and with the heating of the day it produced kind of like pop-up showers, but because it was so cold it produced just flurries,” said Denton.
Despite freezing temperatures early in the week, the days are expected to hit the sixties throughout the rest of the week.
