Icy Conditions This Morning; Tracking Major Weekend Storm

The high moisture content could mean possible snow rates of 2-3 inches per hour.

The National Weather Service is now predicting 5 to 9 inches of snow for Orange County and 4 to 8 inches for Putnam County.

Temperatures will reach the upper 30s and low 40s in costal areas of MA on Friday.

Lake-effect snow is expected to follow the main snowstorm Saturday night in some areas, as blowing and drifting snow hits most of northeast IL.

The second storm system over the weekend is the stronger of the two, but is also a bit harder to pinpoint when it comes to actual effects of the storm.


A winter storm watch remains in effect from Saturday afternoon through Sunday evening across parts of northern CT. In Baltimore. we won't see the precipitation move in until Thursday evening.

KDKA Meteorologist Ron Smiley says a wintry mix is in the forecast for Wednesday, but that may be just be a preview of what's to come.

Dry to start the weekend with mostly cloudy skies Saturday morning. Snowfall totals look to be near a foot, perhaps more, for our area.

Temperatures at dawn Sunday will mark the highs for the day, with readings expected to fall 15 to 30 degrees by sunset, reaching the teens and 20s. Temperatures will then plummet on the backside of the departing low and we could see some flash freezing across all of the region as drop into the single digits or even below zero in areas by Sunday night and then into Monday morning as well.

Weather.com stresses that the storm is still a few days away, so the forecast is subject to change. And, follow Local4 Weather on Facebook and Twitter, and download the Local4 Weather app!
