Subzero morning wind chills and a cold afternoon

Subzero morning wind chills and a cold afternoon

No, we're not out of the woods yet in terms of unpleasant winter weather, Long Islanders.

"This will continue to be a very hard forecast over the next couple of days".

Snow chances are high most of Saturday night and last into early Monday morning. We do not expect excessively warm air in the south, but temps can move into the 35-36 degree range Sunday afternoon, which make for the more complicated forecast.

Sunday, however, there is a decent chance of snow, forecasters said, with a half-inch to 1 inch possible in most locations in eastern Nebraska and southwest Iowa.

Saturday: A slight chance of rain and snow before 1 p.m., then a chance of rain between 1 and 5 p.m., then a chance of rain and snow after 5. Again, residents are asked to use caution while driving to work or school. Some ice accumulation also is expected, Horne said.

Rain is expected for Worcester, Accomack and Northampton counties early Friday morning, according to the weather service, with Virginia set to receive snow Friday. "By Sunday evening most areas should see a 2-5" snowfall.

Snow, freezing rain and sleet are expected Sunday morning.

Snow will return by early Sunday morning
Snow on the way for Super Bowl Sunday

Tonight: Rain before 3am, then rain and snow between 3am and 4am, then snow after 4am. South southwest wind around 6 miles per hour. Chance of precipitation is 40 percent. "In other words - despite the mild Saturday, we'll be dealing with 'mostly cloudy" skies. The wind chill could drop down to the negative digits. Southwest wind 7 to 11 miles per hour.

Mostly cloudy. Mostly cloudy. Wind chill values between zero and 10. A north wind gusting to 30 miles per hour will make it feel like it's below zero through the day as well.

Today's forecast calls for mostly sunny skies, with a high near 41. Low around 50. Southeast wind 5 to 10 miles per hour. West wind 8 to 11 miles per hour.

THURSDAY NIGHT: Rain developing, changing to snow in spots before ending early Friday. Temperatures rising to 35-40.

Tomorrow, southwest winds develop ahead of our next system that comes in on Sunday. Chance of precipitation is 50 percent. New snow accumulation of around 2 inches.
