A winter weather advisory has been issued for the entire area, from 4 a.m. through 7 p.m. Friday.

Rain will transition to a mix of sleet, possible freezing rain and snow as temperatures drop quickly Saturday morning.

Friday: Freezing rain likely, possibly mixed with snow before 3 p.m.; then rain likely, possibly mixed with snow. It said snow and sleet accumulations of 1 to 2 inches are possible, along with ice accumulations up to a tenth of an inch.

The weather service issued a flood watch for Southern New England from Friday morning through Saturday afternoon, cautioning residents that there is a chance of river and stream flooding, as well as significant street flooding that could affect the Friday evening commute. Snow and sleet might fall, but less than half an inch of accumulation is forecast.

"Regardless of how much falls of each type, it looks like travel will become pretty hazardous Friday night into Saturday", Thompson said. Ice and snow accumulations are expected to be higher across northeast OH and northwest Pennsylvania with somewhat higher snow amounts in the snowbelt of northeast OH and northwest Pennsylvania. Light snow is likely again Monday.

The National Weather Service also has issued flood watches from Kentucky to ME, with over 30 million people under the threat of flooding from heavy rain and snow melt.

In addition to snow, cold weather returns Saturday.

Rain will continue through Friday night with a high near 58.

The cold front in the Midwest will sweep east and bring east coast temperatures in the 50s to 70s now back down to the 20s.

A strong cold front was moving through the state on Friday morning, along with scattered rain. New snow accumulation for Saturday is less than an inch.

WKYT chief meteorologist Chris Bailey said the Lexington area could receive as much as 6 inches of snow and a quarter-inch of ice.

Snowfall will stop in southern IL between 6 and 9 A.M, but will continue until noon for west Kentucky. Gusts of 30 miles per hour are possible. Temperatures are expected to remain freezing until Sunday across the region.

"Things probably will improve some, you know with road crews out and that kind of thing, especially on the major highways".

This is a system that Storm Team 27 is watching closely.

The switch from rain to sleet & snow will happen first in Northern New York and northwest Vermont.
