Rain, temperature drop throughout the day — TODAY'S FORECAST

The short break in winter-like weather in northern New England is over, with the return of cold temperatures starting this weekend.

While the snow is in the forecast, it does not look like it will be a high impact situation, said Mike Montefusco, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Wakefield, Virginia. Temperatures will return to the teens and 20s on Sunday and Monday. Total daytime snow and sleet accumulation of around 2 inches. In addition, driving conditions after the rain stops are expected to be hard, as temperatures are expected to drop once again come late Saturday/earlySunday, resulting in flooded streets becoming encrusted with heavy patches of ice. Chance of precipitation is 80%, but little or no snow or ice accumulation is expected.

The weather service issued a hazardous weather outlook for Champaign, Christian, DeWitt, Douglas, Logan, Macon, McLean, Moultrie, Piatt, Sangamon and Shelby counties.

By 11 p.m. or midnight Thursday, the freezing rain switches over to snow. Cloudy, with a temperature falling to around 28 by 5 p.m. Northwest wind 10 to 15 miles per hour becoming north 15 to 20 miles per hour in the morning. Skow said there is a "very slight" chance of light snow flurries in Lawrence on Friday, but that snowfall is more likely in areas west of Lawrence. Tuesday then continues with "a 40 percent chance of snow" with a high of 31 degrees.

On Monday, Martin Luther King Jr.

Skies will clear Thursday evening, and temperatures will plummet, with a low around 15. South wind 5 to 8 miles per hour.

Blowing snow is possible Friday night as winds increase. Saturday will bring temperatures down to 65 degrees and mostly sunny skies.

The National Weather Service in State College has issued a flood watch for Clinton, Centre, Lycoming and other counties in Central Pennsylvania, effective through Saturday night.
