Mark SpencerNational, Northeast, Weather NewsLeave a Comment

A storm system will spread an area precipitation across much of the Northeast US beginning early Friday afternoon. A wintry mix is expected during the onset of this precipitation. The higher elevations of central Pennsylvania and Upstate New York will experience both snowfall and light freezing rain.

This area of precipitation will continue to progress eastward across the remainder of New England. Interior portions will hold onto the sub-freezing temperatures leading to a mix of frozen precipitation. Temperatures in the major cities, along the Interstate 95 corridor, will remain above freezing. This will limit the impact from this system in those areas.

Areas of interior Maine are expected to deal with the snow and light freezing rain for the greatest duration as temperature hold below freezing. All frozen precipitation ends across the entire region by Saturday afternoon as warmer air ushers into the aforementioned areas.

Accumulations across the Northeast will be relatively light. Ice accretion will generally be up to a tenth of an inch. Snowfall accumulation of one to three inches is expected, however, isolated higher amounts are possible in the highest elevations of Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont.

Impacts from this system will be generally insignificant as the warmer air moves in behind this area of wintry mix.
