New snow and rain warning issued for Cumbria

Cold weather will move into the Midwest and Northeast following the storm

The snow will likely change into rain later on Friday, as well, but that's still not the end. Behind this system it will turn blustery and cold for Thursday's Red Sox home opener.

Yesterday's high temperature of 48 degrees gave way to summer-like temperatures and occasional rain today.

Freezing rain or snow is likely in northern Peterborough County and northern Kawartha Lakes, with significant snowfall (15 to 30 cm) possible in northern Haliburton County.

Be sure to allow for some extra time on the roads today, as slick conditions will post a threat especially on bridges and overpasses with colder temperatures and stronger winds in place. This will bring a good chance of snow and there is the potential for at least a couple inches accumulation.

Slight chances of precipitation and cool temperatures will continue through the weekend. Low around 38. Breezy, with a south wind 21 to 24 miles per hour, with gusts as high as 38 miles per hour.

WKYT Chief meteorologist Chris Bailey said his weather models are "pretty enthusiastic about the potential for a rather historic April winter storm".

Temperatures dropped to 17 degrees at KCI Wednesday morning, breaking the record of 20 degrees for April 4 set in 1920. Winds could gust as high as 25 miles per hour. Highs Friday will be in the 30s and then dip into the 20s that night, according to the National Weather Service. Many spots could wake up to low temps in the single digits. Another 1 to 2 inches are possible between 7 p.m. and 1 a.m Wednesday.

By Tuesday evening, colder air eventually transitions the rain to light snow showers, and those look to stay steady through Tuesday night.
