Topeka saw 1.8 inches of snow Thursday but none likely in week to come

Cold weather arrives Friday afternoon in New Orleans. Do you know where your parka is?

A cold front is expected to arrive in the New Orleans metro area Friday (Nov. 9), dropping temperatures into the 40s and 50s for the weekend.

The high for the day (70 degrees) is expected around 8 a.m. before the temperature starts falling, the National Weather Service said. Rain also is likely Friday afternoon.

Mike Ryan, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, says he hopes this new alert helps in, "Highlighting the greatest threat for dangerous driving conditions within the area where that squall is moving in. Where we may see near white-out conditions. Snowfall rates on the order of 1-2" per hour. Wind gusts over 30 mph. All of those things that can create significant problems on the roadways."

On the south shore, lows in the 40s are possible Friday and Saturday nights. Highs in the 50s and 60s are expected in this weekend.

Snow squalls are intense and narrow bands of snow.  Basically – you go from a light snow shower all of the sudden to near white out conditions.  That's a bad combination when you're driving.  The image below shows a 35 car pile-up in 2013.  It was the result of a snow squall along I-70.

On the North Shore, the highs will be in the 50s this weekend and the lows in the mid-40s. See the full forecast for the North Shore.

Another foggy start to the day ahead of a cold front that will bring rain and storms to the area today. Temps will fall in the afternoon as the cold front moves through. Tonight expect lows to dip into the 40s. Much cooler weather in store for us through next week. #lawx #mswx

Are we zipping through fall and into the chill of winter?  The outlook for November does suggest cooler than average temperatures can be…

Look for clouds to increase as the day goes on and heavy rain to arrive by the evening, according to the National Weather Service.

We know our Halloween weather can be a mixed bag. Sometimes it's a real treat, other times it gets a bit tricky. So,…

1-2 inches of snow, cold temperatures expected Friday

A flood watch is in effect for most of Massachusetts from 5 p.m. Friday through Saturday afternoon. A wind advisory is in effect for the Cape and Islands from 10 p.m. Friday until 6 a.m. Saturday.

Its something new from the National Weather Service and is centered around keeping you safe on the road this winter.  Theyre…

“A widespread soaking rainfall is forecast this evening and overnight,” the weather service said. “This rainfall will bring the potential for significant urban and poor drainage flooding.”

You will want to get your shovels ready because we’re expecting a half inch to two inches of snowfall by tomorrow morning. With temperatures being down near 20 it will be cold enough to stick to roads, which will make for a potentially slippery morning commute. Please do drive safe and be sure to clear snow from your car prior to leaving. Safety first!

Take a look at the storm drains on your street and make sure they’re clear of any leaves because clogged drains will only make flooding worse.

The snow will fizzle out in the morning hours with light flurries possible through the afternoon. Once that system makes its way through, heavy winds will cause for very cold feels-like temperatures. NW winds at 15-20 mph and gusting up to 30 mph will be possible.

Forecasters predict 1 to 2 inches of rainfall throughout most of the state, and as much as 3 inches in some places. The rainfall totals in Berkshire County are expected to be slightly less, but could still result in some flooding.

The rest of the weekend will shape up to be sunny and dry. Saturday will be mostly cloudy in the morning, and then clearing, with highs in the upper 40s. It will get colder in the afternoon as temperatures fall into the lower 40s, forecasters said.

Morning fog, flurries then sunshine; next snow arrives Sunday

Saturday night will be mostly clear and chilly in the Boston area, with lows dipping to the lower 30s. Sunday will be sunny, with highs in the lower 40s, and temperatures are expect to plunge into the 20s at night.

It was another cloudy and cold day across the Chippewa Valley with feels-like temperatures sitting in the teens through the afternoon.

Monday will be mostly sunny during the day, with highs in the mid 40s, and the next round of rainfall is due to arrive Monday night, and it could be heavy at times. Even better yet, there’s a chance it could start as snow in some places.

“This may result in some renewed river flooding,” the weather service said. “There is also the low risk that precipitation begins as a period of snow or ice across the interior, but mainly a rain event is expected.”

[Flood Watch Fri Night/Sat] Heavy rain late Fri/Fri night may result in some urban/poor drainage street flooding. Steady rain ends by daybreak Sat, but runoff may result in some minor river/stream flooding into Sat pm. Dry weather returns Sat, but it turns windy and chillier.
