Winter weather advisory extended

Ice accumulations could lead to power outages and tree damage. A significant concern is the sleet and freezing rain that will fall across the Midwest as the cold air rushes in and meets up with the moisture from the storm.

Rain, freezing rain and a wintry mix were in the forecast as the National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory from 8 a.m.to 3 p.m. Thursday.

The precipitation will usher in cold and blustery conditions. Mostly cloudy skies will still stick around, however, and temperatures will once again hit the teens.

"After reaching the 50s and 60s along the Interstate 95 corridor late this week, high temperatures will be held in the 20s and 30s by late this weekend into next week", said AccuWeather meteorologist Kyle Elliott.

It will rain on and off before 4 p.m.

The rain will begin to change to snow and ice by Saturday morning as the colder air wraps around the storm further east, getting close to the more-populated I-95 corridor. The wind chill will be between minus 1 and 9, with a north wind of 8 miles per hour, according to the weather service.

1-2 feet of snow is expected to fall in the higher elevations, which will bolster an already-healthy snowpack.
