Snow is expected to arrive late tomorrow night and continue all day on Saturday.

Parking Bans are in effect now in Woonsocket.

The Providence Parking Ban will kick in early Saturday morning.

In Warwick- officials spent much of the day meeting on their preparedness. Officials there say they are ready---with plenty of plow drivers available to them to handle the 54 different routes that need to be plowed.
