Severe weather threat increases as we head through the day

Gusty winds, heavy downpours


PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — We are starting out cloudy this morning, but as we head through the day, the sun comes out and we get the daytime heating which increases our storm threat.

Spc Day 2

Stay weather aware this afternoon as we see the storms start to fire up to the west of us and head our direction. This will be a bit of an issue during the commute especially if you need to get from Boston to Providence as you head home around 5pm.
