Area braces for winter weather

Winter Weather Advisory Issued for Northern Arkansas

With ice on the rivers, ice jams might be an issue.

Roofing companies like Newton Roofing Residential, are warning residents of the potential of ice dams during the melting period because the dams can trap water in roofs and force it into homes. But whether or not this will happen in CT is a wildcard.

Winter weather is back in full force.

The frigid conditions are expected to stick around through the week after a brief warmup on Friday, when temperatures were recorded in the low 60s.

Any standing water in the parking lots or on the roads early in the day will have turned to ice.

Note: If you can do so SAFELY, remove snow off of your roof (if you have a moderate to heavy amount of snow) prior to the rain moving in, to avoid any roof issues later.

The central NY region is bracing itself for a severe winter storm that will create hazardous road conditions and possible flooding in some areas.

A powerful cold front will blast through the Washington region late Friday night, rain will pour down and temperatures will drop suddenly Saturday morning. By 9-10 am the rain will be over. "This could produce some snow, sleet and freezing rain", NWS forecasters said. "When that happens, we can have a flash freeze".

Mark Croarkin, district maintenance engineer with the MoDOT, said the rain is challenging because it washes off chemicals put down to treat icy roads. Monday's forecast is cloudy, with a high near 25 degrees. As a clipper type low move in, we'll have clouds, snow showers and cold temperatures on Tuesday and Wednesday. One of the major concerns for many is that the drains are clogged, which causes flooding on roadways.

Here in southern New England this looks primarily like a rainstorm.

A warmer and soggy Friday is on the way as rain moves in along with temps in the upper 40s to upper 50s!

SATURDAY: Rain ends in the morning.
