"We don't know how much snow yet".

- While there is still some uncertainty in the minor details, our weekend winter storm is on track to drop more than 6 inches of snow for much of the area.

With wet heavy snow in the forecast, and potentially another wet storm system next week, here are a few safety considerations for the forecast ahead.

And for late Friday and weekend travelers, keep in mind that the Hawthorne Bridge will be closed from 10 p.m. tonight until about 5 a.m. Monday due to maintenance work.

Coral are offering 2-1 that records will be smashed and odds-on at 4-6 that snow will fall in any major United Kingdom city by the end of Sunday.

However, there will be scattered showers following on Friday evening - with highest temperatures ranging from 8C to 12C. Little or no ice accumulation expected.

"This will bring a wintry precipitation mix Saturday night, which will change to rain from around daybreak through midday Sunday", forecasters said.

Rain will continue through Sunday, accumulating between half an inch and an inch.

Sunday: A 20 percent chance of snow before noon. West northwest wind 9 to 14 miles per hour, with gusts as high as 23 miles per hour.

Sat: High: 63 Early AM showers/storms, then partly cloudy and windy. Southern most counties of England will see some showers spreading east, but as these clear the southeast later this morning it will generally be followed by drier and brighter for a time before showers return from the northwest in the evening.

But temperatures will dip during the night, some parts of Scotland will probably be sub-zero.
