How Much Snow Will Tiverton, Little Compton Get Saturday?

A second storm is headed to the area and could make driving hazardous on Saturday.


A second storm of the week is headed toward New England and will dump a bit more snow onto the area on Saturday.

The National Weather Service is now predicting Tverton and Little Compton to get only about an inch of snow in the storm that is expected to start around noon Saturday, ending late Saturday night. But that doesn't mean residents — particularly motorists — can take this storm lightly. The weather service is predicting snow to begin late morning, then switch to rain, before returning to snow. The result could be a slippery mess on roads all over town. And other forecasters are predicting as much as 4-6 inches in the area, so accumluations could increase. Patchy fog is expected to worsen visibility as temperatures warm slightly in the afternoon, topping out around 38.

The rest of the weekend and early week is looking better — though cooler — in Tiverton and Little Compton. Expect partly sunny skies with temperatures in the low- to mid-30s Sunday and Monday, with overnight lows dipping into the low-20s. New Year's Day should warm a bit, with temps topping out in the high-30s under mostly coudy skies.

I'm not sure what's going on but for the last few years we were always the first street plowed. Today, it's been different.
