Rain combining with melting snowpack may generate "urban and isolated" flooding, and the weather agency on Friday issued a flood watch for all of MA and all of Southern New England that remains in effect until Saturday afternoon.

The arrival of the significantly colder temperatures was projected for around 5 p.m. along the Ohio River in northern West Virginia and roughly 8 p.m. near Huntington in southern West Virginia.

About 12:40 p.m., the temperature at O'Hare International Airport reached 58, just 3 degrees shy of the record high temperature for January 11 of 61 degrees, which was set in 1880, according to the National Weather Service in Romeoville.

Ice and sleet as well as reduced visibility are expected to make travel conditions unsafe Friday morning.

There is a slight chance for snow or rain on Sunday while the high will be about 38 degrees.

Some of Friday's rain will be heavy and may come with thunder.

Snow, rain and sun are all expected to make appearances in the next five days in the Spokane area.

Temperatures are predicted to reach 57 degrees in Northampton Friday afternoon, contributing to the rapidly melting snow.

The National Weather Service is eagerly monitoring models ahead of Friday's wintry blast.

The National Weather Service predicts that Sunbury will receive less than a half inch of new snow/sleet accumulation tonight and less than one inch of new snow accumulation on Saturday.

Gusting winds may also cause power outages.

Rainfall will amount to between 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch during the day and another inch or two overnight. Less than an inch of snow, if any, is expected near the coast.

The system will move out of the region by Friday evening.

The flooding concern extends to neighborhoods near streams and rivers that won't crest until sometime on Sunday, forecasters wrote.

The National Weather Service in Paducah said west Kentucky and southern IL are getting a taste of spring temperatures this week, only to be followed by a winter storm. Winds could gust as high as 20 miles per hour. Temperatures will stay well below freezing over the next week.

"Things probably will improve some, you know with road crews out and that kind of thing, especially on the major highways".
