FORECAST: Temperatures plunge, winter weather advisories in effect

Expect colder temperatures when you wake up on Saturday with temperatures hovering in the low to mid 30's.

"Normal would be highs around 44 and lows around 28".

The low temperatures are between 10 and 15 degrees lower than the average for this time of year, Tongue said, which will turn the snow falling on Friday into ice over the weekend.

A band of heavy snow falling across northern DE should turn into light flurries as the first hour of the afternoon comes to an end. So, when we predict temperatures near 60 Thursday afternoon AND snow by the A.M. rush Friday, it's not really a surprise. Squalls can bring strong winds, near whiteout conditions, and a quick coating of snow.

By Saturday, that swath of snow should spread into the mid-Mississippi Valley, Ohio Valley and parts of the Appalachians. Breezy, with a west wind 10 to 20 miles per hour, with gusts as high as 36 miles per hour.

Sunday. Sunny, with a high near 41.

This is a much weaker solution, although there is some sort of coastal storm, with air cold enough over our area for snow. Cloudy, with a high near 42.

Tuesday. Partly sunny, with a high near 39.

Storm Team 8 says there is potential for a major winter storm Monday night into Wednesday.

As if snow and cold temperatures weren't enough, there is a "potential" for a significant Nor-Easter heading into North Jersey early next week, Tongue said.
