Rain is expected to change to freezing rain and sleet late Thursday night, into Friday morning. The quick drop in temperature and rain followed by snow could very well create a repeat of earlier in the week with hazardous road conditions around the area.

The area, however, could see minor accumulations of ice and sleet and then snow later in the day.

There are no major changes to the forecast as we head through the day with the cold front blasting out of Kentuckiana by late morning with rain eventually giving way to freezing rain/sleet and eventually snow from west to east.

The weather service in Huntsville said a light glaze of ice and up to a half inch of snow will be possible through this evening. Currently, the Weather Prediction Center has a 70-90% chance that much of northern and western OH will have snowfall totals exceeding 3 inches from the storm (see map).

The MBTA continued clearing last week's snow on Thursday, removing accumulation "from canopies and roofs within the MBTA system that are known to be prone to falling snow hazards", the authority said in a statement.

Tree damage and power outages are possible, according to the National Weather Service.

The heaviest snow is expected from northwestern Pennsylvania into far northern NY, where upwards of a foot of new snow is expected by Saturday morning.

So forecasters cautioned that any travel problems that develop today may linger into Saturday.

A powerful cold front is bringing below freezing temperatures as it sweeps through eastern Iowa and western IL.

The system will move out of the region by Friday evening. "For the Hartford Area, a 95 year old record fell with 10.2" of snow (previously: "8.1"); at Bridgeport, the prior record of 5.3" (1988) was also well surpassed with 8.0" of snow yesterday.

The rain is expected to move into the Kansas City area - starting in the north and then spreading to the south - after midnight Wednesday.

The National Weather Service said watch for areas of fog Friday morning amid periods of rain.

The Weather Channel has named the storm Winter Storm Hunter. Parts of Calloway, Marshall, Trigg, Lyon, Christian and Hopkins Counties in Kentucky are expected to get close to a quarter inch of ice.

The switch from rain to sleet & snow will happen first in Northern New York and northwest Vermont. Days of subfreezing temperatures have made for plenty of ice on the Missouri River.
