Rain and rain changing to snow ahead of a cold front Thurs-Fri


A cold front will sweep across the East coast Thursday into Friday. The main threat from this system across the South will be rain. We are not expecting a big wintry threat from this system for most people. The exception is far northern New England where they could see a brief period of snow.

Below is what we are expecting.

Area A – Mainly rain that will end after the front pushes through. Turning colder but not too terribly cold.

Area B – Rain for the most part, but could change to snow at the end of the event. There is a concern for a flash-freeze as temperatures drop, which could cause patchy black ice on the roads and sidewalks.

Areas C – Light snow, with overall light accumulations expected. The event may start out briefly as rain or sleet.

This is expected to be a minor event and not last too long. The biggest danger is the freeze of any standing water as sub-freezing temperatures move in.
