Snow expected for parts of Northeast Ohio Thursday night into Friday morning

That icy cold is now making its way toward the Northeast, with record lows in store. A gusty west-northwest wind will send wind chills crashing into the single digits to low teens as you head out the door to work or school Friday morning.

The temperature in Islip, New York, on Long Island, is expected to drop to 1 on Saturday, beating the old record low by six degrees. But the final week of November is hinting to pretty cold temperatures that could carry over into December.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for mixed precipitation, in effect from 10 p.m. today through noon Thursday. Wind advisories are in place for New England, where gusts could reach up to 50 miles per hour. The frigid air crossing the warmer waters of the Great Lakes is already producing bands of heavy lake-effect snow across the snowbelts of MI.

While any snow accumulations will not be huge by any stretch, a scattered dusting on the roads and grassy surfaces, the cooler temperatures and the quick coating could lead to some slick travel in areas that do see the snow showers.

A low pressure system could also bring a few inches of snow to Vermont, New Hampshire and ME on Friday and Saturday.
