More snow to fall Friday night

While the storm is expected to travel east by Sunday, most cities along the East Coast won't face almost as rough conditions as the Midwest.

Forecasters say the heaviest snow is expected to fall late Saturday night into Sunday morning.

"If they trend higher, we might have to up our amounts", said Jeremy Geiger, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service's Baltimore/Washington forecast office.

The warnings are in effect from 1 p.m. Saturday to 7 p.m. Sunday.

"Snow will overspread the region Saturday into Sunday".

Strong winter winds held temperatures below 40 degrees for the first time this year on Thursday, which ended a 28-day streak of above normal temperatures at Reagan National Airport, our longest stretch of "warmth" in winter in over a decade. A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for counties south of 36 Highway, including Platte, Clinton, Caldwell, and Livingston.

Temperatures across the Baltimore region are forecast to peak in the lower 30s during the day Sunday, dropping to the upper 20s early Sunday morning. As of now, it looks like this late-week system will bring more rain and snow chances to the Commonwealth.

Road conditions continue to be an issue for nearly all of IL, with IDOT reporting Interstates in our area as covered with snow or ice. South of the Triad less than ½ inch of snow and sleet.
