More Snow On The Way?
Johnston is looking at the possibility of two more snowstorms this week — one Wednesday and a potentially bigger one Sunday.
Although it's early in the game, some preliminary weather models are projecting more snow to move into the area this week.
First, initial projections are predicting that Rhode Island could get 2 to 4 inches Wednesday into Thursday as a smaller system makes its way across the Northeast. More aggressive models project 6 to 8 inches.
Unfortunately, that's not all. Another major storm system, currently brewing in the Pacific Northwest, could be heading straight toward New England this weekend. Cold air from Canada is expected to plunge into the storm system and could hit the Northeast or bypass the area and head out to sea.
Earliest estimates have the storm hitting Rhode Island Sunday or Sunday night. This storm could pack more of a punch than the midweek storm, but current forecasts are very uncertain at this time.
