National Weather Service Says the Chances are Improving for Weekend Snow

National Weather Service Says the Chances are Improving for Weekend Snow

Any lingering precipitation is expected to end by late Friday morning, with a high of 40 degrees.

By nightfall Sunday, most Chicagoans should expect the temperature to be in the single digits. Wind speeds will frequently gusts to 20 to 30 miles per hour and possibly higher, the NWS reported. Idaho Falls, Rexburg, Rigby, St. Anthony, Idaho National Laboratory, Mud Lake, Arco, Mackay, Howe, Dubois and Spencer will see between 1 to 4 inches of snow with additional ice accumulations on top of the snow following freezing rain.

Snowfall rates may reach one to two inches per hour during the weekend storm.

Wintry weather is poised to cause some problems as the week draws to a close in the Northeast, but an even bigger storm is looming for the weekend with up to 2 feet of snow expected in parts of northern New England.

Winter Storm Watches have been issued for most of the Hudson Valley with 7 to 14 inches of snow and ice predicted.

Skies are expected to clear Sunday into Monday, but it'll come with an arctic air and frigid temperatures.

On Long Island, precipitation is likely to begin as snow Saturday evening but should transition to rain late Saturday night into Sunday morning, according to the National Weather Service forecast.

This may impact the Friday morning commute with slick roads.

By Saturday evening, it's likely to turn to rain along the I-95 corridor, and potentially snow at the higher elevations north and west of Baltimore. It will soon be replaced by snow flurries, snowstorms and, by Sunday, bitter cold.

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.
