PROVIDENCE -- A storm this weekend is likely to bring accumulating snow before changing to a wintry mix or rain late Saturday into early Sunday, the National Weather Service says.
After the storm moves into the region Saturday, gradually spreading "snow in from the southwest to northeast," warmer air will move into the region, changing the precipitation to a mix or rain, the Weather Service says.
"Precipitation should come to an end early on Sunday as the low lifts into Nova Scotia," the Weather Service says.
For Providence, the Weather Service says the snow is most likely to arrive after 4 p.m. before changing to a mix of rain and snow and then all rain after 10 p.m., the Weather Service says.
Before the storm arrives, expect a high near 48 degrees on this Wednesday and sunny skies.
Rain is likely early Thursday morning. The high should reach 43.
Friday looks sunny, but much colder with a high near 25.
Saturday's high should reach 34.
After the storm moves away Sunday, expect partly sunny skies with a high near 41.
