The dicey weekend forecast has gotten a bit dicier. More than one inch of rain is possible.
Saturday afternoon should see freezing rain appear over the area. The upper Midwest is preparing for a wintry blast as a winter storm is expected across the region, with forecasters saying up to a foot of snow is expected in some areas.
Monday, it will be sunny with a high near 37 and an east wind of 3 to 8 miles per hour, the weather service said.
At this time I am not expecting much in the way of accumulating snow.
Widespread light snow continues in counties along and north of Interstate-80. At 5 inches, Fort Wayne has half the snow depth of Angola. The heaviest rain looks set to hit southeastern Pennsylvania, parts of New Jersey and in northeast Maryland and northern DE, the weather service said on Saturday.
There is a little lingering snow showers around mostly higher based but the valley floors could see a dusting of snow heading into this evening.
Another round of snow is expected this weekend across central and eastern Kansas. This will allow us to cool back off in to the low and middle 20s Sunday night with gradually clearing clouds.
Accumulations of 1 to 3 inches is possible across central Kansas.
The rain is expected to continue into Sunday as temperatures again reach a high of about 50, the weather service said.
Winds are expected to be between 5-10 miles per hour. Looking ahead to middle part of next week we are looking at a few chances of spotty showers late Wednesday night and Thursday, highs should remain those days in the low 40s.
