For heavy snow to be thrown back across the Central Appalachians and eastern Great Lakes region, the storm would have to strengthen very quickly and hug the Mid-Atlantic Coast.

If that storm creeps a little farther north, southern areas could see light snow or flurries Friday morning. The fastest, biggest accumulations will be found on cold, grassy surface. New snow accumulation of 1 to 3 inches possible.

This Winter Weather Advisory for snow means that a period of snow will cause hazardous travel.

ColdNAM model temperature forecast for Saturday morning. Temperatures will be in the 20s for the start, with the wind chill in the teens.

A cold front passing through the state Friday will usher in the colder air starting Friday night. Mother nature reminds us that winter is sticking around and could bring another shot of some rain/snow early next week. Northwest wind 13 to 15 miles per hour.

If the storm strengthens rapidly, a far-reaching major Nor'easter could unfold. Accumulating snow is expected from Pennsylvania to southern New England and Mid-Atlantic with this system, with some locations receiving a foot or more of snow east of New York City Monday through Wednesday.

When will we know? By that point, we'll be beyond Friday's snow. And visibility will be reduced to one-half mile or less at times. But this one looks like one to watch, folks!
