Rapid Weather Changes In The Coming Days

NBC10 Boston Weather Team Flooding Freezing and a Risk of Snow Week

Ice and snow accumulations are expected to be highest across northeast OH and northwest Pennsylvania, the service said. "We do not often see temperatures drop that quickly in this part of the country".

As of 8 a.m., it was 56 degrees at O'Hare International Airport, and the National Weather Service said it could reach 62 before temperatures plummet. Total daytime snow accumulation is expected to be around 3 inches.

Skies will be mostly cloudy on Saturday, while the high will be about 37 degrees with southwesterly winds up to about 14 miles per hour. Wind chill values as low as zero. "Saturday looks to be pretty chilly, but Sunday's supposed to feature a warm-up with highs going back into the low 30s".

There is a high likelihood of significant urban street flooding, most notably where storm drains remain clogged.

Though the snow is predicted to stop Thursday night, the National Weather Service says winds are predicted to stay around 15 to 20 miles per hour until midnight, then drop to five to 10 miles per hour.

Travel will undeniably be quite hard late Friday night into Saturday morning with icy, slick surfaces and then accumulating snow.

Sunday night: Mostly clear, with a low around 16.

Rain that began in the morning Thursday will be on and off through the morning and be more steady as a cold front moves toward the region.

Forecasts are calling for highs in the teens and lows in the single digits again.

Increasing clouds, winds from the north and a high near 21 degrees are also in the forecast. Additionally, any wet surfaces will rapidly freeze as a sharp temperature drop of 30 to 40 degrees occurs in just a few hours.

Tuesday: Sunny, with a high near 15. Crews will wait until temperatures get low before spreading chemicals so they have less time to wash away.

Saturday: A 50 percent chance of rain, mainly before 9 a.m.

THURSDAY: Partly cloudy skies develop, with a high temperature of 28 degrees.
