Yet another winter storm has blanketed Rhode Island in snow.  This weekend saw more than a foot of the white stuff fall in areas including North Providence, Burrilville and Warren.  Residents are now dealing with arctic temperatures.

Temperatures are hovering in the single digits and below, all across the state.  The national weather service has issued a wind chill warning for Monday morning.  The service warns that wind chills could get as low as 15 below in some parts of the state.  Warnings are only issued when wind chills are likely to fall to dangerous levels for three hours or more.  Forecasters warn that when chill fall this low, frostbite can set in on exposed skin in just minutes. If you must go outdoors, cover everything, and dress in layers.

The National Weather Service predicts more snows are on the way Tuesday.
