An approaching winter weather system is expected to complicate yet another morning commute Thursday. 

The National Weather Service out of Taunton has issued a winter storm watch for most of Rhode Island, effective Thursday from 7 a.m. until Friday morning.

The storm will have a greater impact on northern and western parts of the state, with 4 to 6 inches of snow predicted. The southern third of the state and coastal areas will see approximately 1 to 3 inches while the northwest corner can expect more than 6 inches.

Snowfall will start after 4 a.m. Thursday, becoming heavy for the later part of the morning commute. From 7 to 10 a.m., snowfall rates could potentially jump to one to two inches an hour. Snow will change over to sleet then rain after noon, especially for areas south of Providence County. Rain showers will continue through the evening before switching back to snow after midnight on Thursday.
