Focus remains on potential weekend storm; flurries possible tonight, tomorrow

- Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf has declared a State of Emergency in anticipation of part two of a roller coaster of winter weather after it brought some light snow overnight, causing delayed openings for dozens of area schools.

Snowfall totals of at least half a foot are expected across nearly the entire Northeast, from eastern OH to Maine. Most of western MA could see up two feet. A slight shift to the south will lock in colder air, resulting in more significant snowfall.

The low could dip into the single-digits Sunday night, with a high near 19 expected for Monday, according to the weather service.

It won't be as frigid as first feared, though it will be cold when the Kansas City Chiefs take on the New England Patriots Sunday evening.

" Though Maryland is expected to be on the "warm" side of the storm, temperatures may not rise out of the upper 30s throughout the weekend". Accumulations of less than an inch are expected across the East End. As the storm center passes very close to the region, a matter of 30 miles could make the difference between some snow and a lot of snow.

Snow will continue heavy at times into Saturday night, tapering in the west by midnight.

Saturday - Snow. High near 28. Regardless, this is another big winter storm, with big snow potential at least for the northern half of the lower peninsula (if not us)...more great news for the ski resorts!

Snowfall forecast for the country.

Burlington: Ski territory in northern New England is salivating at the forecast. On top of all that, they warn that the awful wind chills will last right through to Monday.

The rest of the day Friday will be cloudy with a high temperature climbing to around 40 degrees.

'Heavy snow will begin by Friday evening over the central plains and then progress eastward by the weekend, ' the NWS advised. Several inches could fall in short order. Snow will mix with and change to rain over the city, Long Island and coastal New Jersey.

Sunday - A chance of snow showers.

It's impossible to try and gauge how much snow at this point, but plan on a potentially messy commute home from work Tuesday afternoon. By sunrise Sunday, snow is mixing with sleet and freezing rain.

The accumulation forecast for St. Louis is 2 to 4 inches. 2-6 inches of accumulation. It's a similar story across parts of eastern CT and to the south side of the Boston region.

Ahead of our next system, there are a number of our counties, mainly in Iowa, that are underneath a Winter Storm Warning starting at 3pm on Friday through 6am Saturday. People in the Midwest should hunker down for possible blizzard conditions, as strong winds may also be present, said Weather.com.
