Winter has made a brief return to portions of the country this week. See images for observed snowfall over the past couple days and stations that reached record or near record temperatures this morning. Lots of 4″+ snow reports and approaching 30 sites with record lows.

Frost, Freeze, and Winter Wx Warnings and Advisories are in effect from Southern New Mexico to Northern Maine this morning as a strong cold front barrels through the Eastern U.S. bringing some late season snow and leaving record cold in it’s wake.

Thank you, Rhode Island, for the trust you have placed in me these past ten years. It has been a privilege to serve as your treasurer and governor, and I know the future is bright.

Today is the one year anniversary of the first case of COVID-19 in RI. It’s been a long, difficult year, filled with tragedy, heartbreak, and loss. But in our darkest days, we came together and we lifted one another up. We did what Rhode Islanders always do: we found hope.

Great meeting with @LGDanMcKee this afternoon to discuss the next steps in Rhode Island’s COVID-19 response and vaccine rollout. With a 1.9% case positivity rate and over 225,000 vaccine doses administered, we’re on a good path.

On a video call with the vaccine team about what we’re doing this weekend and into the week to quickly get shots in arms. Thank you to these dedicated public servants.

Today we remember the lives lost as we mark 18 years since the Station nightclub fire. Today and every day, our thoughts remain with the victims and their families.
