The National Weather Service is forecasting snowy and slippery conditions beginning Wednesday afternoon and ending with what could be a messy Thursday morning commute.
A Winter Storm Watch has been issued for Rhode Island and it will remain in effect until 6 p.m. March 1.
Wednesday's forecast calls for rain and snow likely before 3 p.m., turning to snow later on. Less than an inch of snow is predicted, but rain, snow and sleet expected to arrive before 4 a.m. on Thursday may cause slick roads, making morning commutes difficult.
We were on the verge of having a snow-free February if not for it being a leap year.
