RI Weekend Weather Wrap – Sat/Sun, Dec. 5/6, 2020

by Jack Donnelly, meteorologist

Saturday 12/5/20:

Rain continues through the day, heavy at times as a Nor’Easter winds it’s way through the area. The heaviest rain will fall during the midday to early afternoon hours, and then the wind will begin screaming out of the northwest as the intensity of the rain starts to wane. Some of the gusts may reach upwards of 50 mph, so expect another mess of twigs and busted branches strewn all over the roadways. The last couple of hours of the storm may drag some snow into the mix after sunset, so roadways may become slick and icy. Daytime highs in the mid 40’s and evening lows drop into the mid 30’s.

Sunday 12/6/20:

A day of cleanup and drying as the storm heads to the Canadian Maritimes, and cloud cover gradually diminishes and winds slacken a bit, but remain gusty through the day. Chilly today, with afternoon highs in the upper 30’s and evening lows in the upper 20’s, chilled not so nicely by westerly breezes.
