Forecast: Expect snow, then more cold weather

Thursday Night: Clouding up, not so cold.

A second system will arrive later Friday night into the early afternoon hours of Saturday.

Rain Friday morning will start off fairly light with dense fog.

There might be a break in the action for a little while around midnight Saturday. Freezing rain, which will transition into snow, is expected through the weekend, causing hazardous driving conditions, especially on untreated surfaces with isolated to scattered power outages possible. By 9-10 am the rain will be over. That agency predicts a high of 36 on Saturday, although a wintry mix is still in the picture.

"So the No. 1 hazard we have here is, what we call, a "flash freeze" across roadways". Highs will be close to 40, with lows dropping to the mid- to low-teens. "Drivers should be prepared by staying up-to-date on the forecast and plan ahead if you need to travel". Temperatures in the northeast region will only reach the low 30s and are not likely to raise above freezing. While this doesn't look like a major storm, accumulation is likely and could cause issues.

Flood watches are posted for southern New England.
