Temperatures remain quite cold Saturday with the chance for some snow showers, especially later during the day.
A few major East Coast cities are likely to see some impact, including Washington, Baltimore and Philadelphia, and there is a possibility for light accumulation in NY along the northern edge of the storm.
A lull in the winter weather for Friday, Jan. 11, before more snow this weekend. A slight chance of light freezing rain and snow Saturday evening should clear by Sunday, giving way to a cloudy day with highs in the mid-30s.
A general 3-6 inches of snow is likely in this swath.
AccuWeather's Dean DeVore says the timetable for today's winter storm has moved up, with snow starting to affect central Missouri during the morning commute.
That includes Denver, Loveland, Fort Collins and Greeley where 1-4 inches of snow accumulation are expected. St. Louis will start to see snow around noon. Stay tuned for details.
Forecasters are calling for snow ranging from 2 to 6 inches, with the highest amounts along and north of Highway 50.
A winter storm warning remains in effect until 6 p.m. today for southern Erie County and Crawford County, according to the National Weather Service. Further to the north a sharp cutoff will exist with places around Galena and Dubuque hardly seeing any accumulation at all as the snow fights off dry air.
Roads will become quite messy Sunday and perhaps Monday as well, leading us to believe that there will be school schedule changes come Monday.
