National Weather Service warns of freezing rain, sleet, snow

The warning will officially begin at 4 p.m. on Friday, but it doesn't look like driving conditions, due to any potential ice, will deteriorate until after 7 p.m.at the earliest, and after 8 p.m.in Pittsburgh.

Warming air, combined with rain and snow melt, will present the risk of ice jam flooding. Even a small amount of ice will create hard travel conditions for the area into Friday morning's commute. The cold continues Tuesday with a high near 29 and low near 12. There's a chance of snow on Sunday and Monday.

A winter weather advisory is in effect for Northeast Mississippi on Friday, and hazardous travel conditions are expected. A larger part of northern and eastern Arkansas is expected to see up to 0.05 inches of ice. The wintry mix to snow will occur between 6 and 8am and that's the main timeframe to watch out for ice.

Freezing rain is expected overnight and early morning Friday. Highs are in the upper 20s to near 30 degrees.

Travel will be risky, particularly in the Friday morning commute. The southern counties could see about half an inch of snow. The umbrella comes in handy as well for Friday night plans with plentiful showers. Depending on the track of the low and where the best band of snow sets up, locally higher amounts are possible for some areas. Snow may briefly change to rain this afternoon.

Another very cold air mass will move in at the start of next week, with consistent below-freezing temperatures from Sunday to Wednesday.

Gusting winds may also cause power outages. It is estimated to be heavier snow for this area, which is 3 or more inches.

"Snow and sleet will be heavy and dense, making it a challenge to shovel", the warning said. No possible accumulation figures were given.

The system will move out of the region by Friday evening.

Temperatures will drop Monday, which is Martin Luther King Jr. Memphis and Shelby County will be on the line with nothing up to an inch. The winter weather is expected to continue through the morning.

Snowfall will stop in southern IL between 6 and 9 A.M, but will continue until noon for west Kentucky.

Winds could be sustained at 18-28 miles per hour, forecasters said, with gusts up to 35 miles per hour through mid-afternoon.

A big impact storm will bring four types of precipitation to the area over the next three days. "But the later they can come in the more it will allow that to happen". "A trace of ice could make for risky driving, but 1/2" of ice build-up starts to cause branches to snap, knocking down power lines in the process.

"It appears locations along and west of I-95 will likely see some sort of frozen precipitation from this storm system between Wilmington, DE to Boston, MA".
