PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — There are several school delays as crews work to treat icy roads. Watch for side roads, especially, to be slick and snow-covered this morning with temperatures in the 20s.

While plow drivers are working hard to clear snow from roads and parking lots, gusty winds will occasionally blow snow back over areas that have already been plowed.

Here are some snow totals from around the state:

Latest Headlines:

National Grid offers the following tips for customers to minimize inconvenience and maximize safety in the event that storm-related power outages occur. Check out our for more information on outages.

  • Never touch downed power lines, and always assume that any fallen lines are live electricity wires. If you see one, report it immediately to National Grid or your local emergency response organization.
  • Power problems can sometimes interrupt public water supply systems or disable well pumps, so it’s an especially good idea to keep a supply of bottled drinking water handy, as well as some canned food.
  • Check on elderly family members, neighbors and others who may need assistance during an outage period.

Cold Weather Car Tips from AAA of Southern New England

  • Drive your car on a regular basis. A car’s battery suffers a lot in really cold weather. When the temperatures drop to about 32 degrees, a car loses about 30% of its battery capacity. When temps drop to zero, a car could lose half its battery capacity. If you leave your car sitting in cold temperatures for two or three days it won’t’ start.
  • Keep your gas tank, at least, half full. This can prevent your gas line from freezing up.
  • Avoid using your parking brake because it can freeze.
  • Avoid cruise control on ice and slippery surfaces.
  • Check your tires regularly. Tires tend to lose air pressure in the winter.
