On Friday, rain will turn to freezing rain, to sleet and then to snow as colder air spreads into the area.

Ice accumulations of around 1/10 of an inch will be possible with total snow accumulations of 1 to 4 inches expected.

Rain this morning will changeover to freezing rain by Noon from the northwest to the southeast.

SATURDAY: Snow showers will linger into early Saturday morning, with much colder temperatures returning.

This rain is part of the same storm system called Hunter by the Weather Channel, forecast to bring heavy snow and ice to the eastern Great Lakes, Ohio Valley and interior Northeast.

The temperatures are finally above freezing, but the nasty weather is far from over.

Chief Meteorologist Ross Janssen says that a storm rolling through the Plains will bring the best chance of snow accumulation that we've had all winter.

Winter weather began falling in the Mid-South around 3 a.m. Friday. More accumulating snow is possible on Monday, followed by another push of arctic air.

As the temps fall, rain will change to mixed precipitation before changing to snow. We will have partly cloudy skies with highs in the teens and 20s.

The National Weather Service in Paducah has issued a regionwide winter storm watch, in effect Thursday evening. Ice accumulation may reach a quarter-inch in the region and up to a half inch in some areas (see graphic).

The official total at Louisville International Airport was 1.3 inches.

FRIDAY: Cloudy with rain.

As temperatures drop below freezing in some areas, people should be aware of conditions that may become hazardous or dangers, including conditions ripe for black ice following freezing rain and sleet.

According to AccuWeather's Senior Meteorologist Mike Doll, "At this point, it looks like just enough cold air will invade the storm to create a major problem for travel beginning from central northeastern Arkansas and western Tennessee to northern ME and southern Quebec and northwestern New Brunswick".
