An "over-performing" snowstorm is slamming much of Rhode Island with up to six inches of fluffy white snow Tuesday morning. The storm trended westward through the night, bumping up projections by dawn.

Most Rhode Island schools have implemented a one-hour delay to classes, leading to questions among many residents about why school wasn't canceled as it became apparent that snow would last through most of the morning. There were numerous reports of buses being later than one hour behind.

Accidents were also reported across the state, including some involving school buses.
