Things are a bit warmer Friday compared to the single digit temperatures of the past several days. 

The National Weather Service predicts temperatures will hover in the low thirties today, before dipping back into the teens overnight. Bill Simpson is spokesman for the National Weather Service. “We’re still gonna continue to be cold, tomorrow’s lows in the lower teens, and the highs in the mid-twenties, so we’re still going to be running a good eight to ten degrees below normal through the weekend,” said Simpson.

Simpson said the state should also expect to see some snow today.  “Rhode Island basically has a three, maybe four hour period of snow, upwards of maybe two inches in the far northwest part of the state.”

The National Weather Service expects snows will be lighter along the coast, but winds could reach gusts of up to 50 miles per hour.
