Cold and snow to start the weekend; April-like pattern next week

The winter storm warning is in effect from 5 p.m. this evening through 7 a.m. tomorrow morning and also covers New York City, southern CT, northeast New Jersey and most of the Lower Hudson Valley.

Clouds will increase through the day on Saturday and the snow is expected to arrive after sunset and snow until Sunday morning. The snow could be wet enough, especially closer to Interstate 95, potentially resulting in some power outages. With road temperatures well above freezing given the recent warm spell, ice should have a hard time accumulating, though some slick roads are possible especially north and west of the city. With its arrival, snow levels are expected to drop to near sea level creating conditions for snow in the lowlands. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 39. Between a tenth and quarter-inch of rain is possible.

Sunday night, there is a slight chance of rain, then a 50 percent chance of rain and thunderstorms after midnight, according to the weather service. Little or no accumulation is expected for most of Northern Virginia.

A winter storm warning has been issued for Nassau County and northwestern Suffolk County until 7 a.m. Sunday. A pretty small range - but included in those seven measly degrees is a huge range of potential weather conditions, from snow to sleet to freezing rain to rain. "Be prepared for significant reductions in visibility at times".
