Rain expected Tuesday, Thursday and Friday

Flooding and Ice Jams Possible Friday

Snow is expected from Friday evening, and will continue into Friday night, tapering off Saturday morning. The snow will taper to snow showers Saturday evening. "Our going forecast for 1-3" of rain with locally higher amounts, is on track.

Crews from Buffalo were out on Cazenovia Creek Tuesday, cutting triangles through the ice to help it break up during the impending thaw and alleviate the possibility for significant ice jam flooding.

The weather pattern will likely shift into a ridge on the East Coast and trough in the West Coast (the opposite as it has been recently).

Any untreated surfaces will quickly ice over during Saturday as a rapid drop in temperatures occurs.

Here in southern New England this looks primarily like a rainstorm. Low: 40s. Near 50 by sunrise. Temperatures will make a run at the records (which were set past year in both Boston and Worcester). Residents are well aware that snow piles and rain don't mix well. "Especially in places with poor drainage, it's something to be aware of". One of the major concerns for many is that the drains are clogged, which causes flooding on roadways. Highs will be close to 40, with lows dropping to the mid- to low-teens.

Heavy rain is moving through the Worcester area and a flood warning has been issued until Saturday morning. Harlan County is under a winter weather advisory, according to the NWS.

Wind chill values described by meteorologists as unsafe are expected to persist throughout the weekend and into Tuesday. The wind chill reading will be minus 2 to 8, and a north wind will be 5 to 9 miles per hour. Chance of precipitation is 60 percent. Skies are expected to generally be clear.

Snow could linger into part of Wednesday.

By Sunday and Monday we're back to cold sunshine with highs in the 20s and 30s. The average temperature at Bradley International Airport was 27.5 degrees, which is 4.1 degrees below normal! Ice changes to snow. Skow said temperatures won't warm up until Sunday. That was the coldest December on record with an average temperature of 18.1 degrees!

Overnight Saturday, the temperature will fall to a low of 7 degrees, with wind chill values as low as -2 degrees. Day, a holiday throughout the area.

Brody was an incredible storm throughout the Northeast. Northwest wind around 15 miles per hour, with gusts as high as 20 miles per hour.

Recent warmth may cause some of the snow partially melt near the ground and cling to trees and power lines, according to AccuWeather.com. "Snowfall ranged from 8" to 16" in most locations. The highest totals are ikely over southeastern MA.
