A quick-moving storm will bring a period of snow to Rhode Island Tuesday night into early Wednesday.

The storm will not bring strong winds and significant power outages.

A mix of rain and snow will transition over to all snow.

Areas from Providence northward will likely pick up an accumulation of 1-3 inches.

An inch or less of snow will fall along the South Coast, where rain will be a factor for a longer period of time.

Roads will mostly be wet, but there could be some slushy and slippery spots developing Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, especially near and north of Providence.

Wednesday is forecast to turn out brisk and chilly with some sunshine for the afternoon.
