The latest on the weekend storm

National Weather Service Says the Chances are Improving for Weekend Snow

A massive winter storm is forecast to hit the eastern United States this weekend, bringing blizzard conditions and heavy ice accumulations to some areas. The snow is projected to continue until 1 p.m. Sunday.

Over 9 inches of snow is possible for Columbia County while Sullivan County could see 8 to 14 inches of snow mixed with some ice, according to the National Weather Service.

Brattleboro, Vermont, Public Works Director Steve Barrett said road crews are getting ready for a mix of sleet, snow, wind and cold temperatures. Temperatures reach the upper 30s to lower 40s. First off, when the snow mixes with wind you end up with blowing snow, posing a unsafe risk to drivers since visibility will be completely reduced. About 12 to 18 inches are most likely in the city, but surrounding regions, except to the south, are expected to see 18 to 24 inches.

Light snow was possible Wednesday night into Thursday morning, the weather service said. Expect hard travel conditions overnight.

Then, an Arctic blast with unsafe wind chills will move into the area Sunday through early next week.

Snow develops toward midnight tonight (perhaps a little sooner for those of you in Lenawee and Washtenaw Counties). Highs will warm to near 35 degrees. Prepare for heavy snow in parts of northern Pennsylvania and NY state to western and northern New England. The agency posted winter storm warnings on the afternoon of January 17, in South Dakota and Iowa and winter storm watches all the way to New England, where accumulations could top 12 inches.

The one-two punch of storms has the potential to severely snarl travel over the long weekend for Martin Luther King Jr Day.

Monday will be mostly sunny and frigid, with a high of only about 10 degrees.
