The First Alert Weather team fully expects the Watch to go be upgraded to a Warning by the National Weather Service for most of, if not all of, the QCA before the storm arrives or during the storm. On the northern edge of the heaviest snow, Burlington is looking at a good 12 to 18 inches, starting Saturday afternoon and lasting into Sunday night.
The 41 Action News weather team says snow accumulations in the metro could range from one to four inches, with higher amounts to the north.
On Sunday, the low temperature is forecast at eight degrees in New York City, with wind chills reaching a bone-chilling minus-20.
Daytime high temperatures are expected to remain in the high 20s or low 30s until Saturday, according to forecasters. A Winter Storm Warning is also in effect beginning at 3 p.m. Friday for Worth, Gentry, Harrison, Mercer, DeKalb, Daviess, Grundy, Caldwell, and Livingston counties until 3 p.m. Saturday.
Snow totals for the mountains of northern Utah will likely approach 1-2 feet, perhaps more in isolated areas.
A light snow continues across the region on this early Friday morning, but it ends before daybreak. Expect hard travel conditions overnight.
Tonight - Snow, mainly before 10 p.m.
Then, an Arctic blast with unsafe wind chills will move into the area Sunday through early next week.
The final, and maybe the worst part of this triple threat is the wind chill factor. Significant snow accumulations are not now forecast for eastern Suffolk. New snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible.
Southeastern Idaho, including Pocatello, American Falls, Blackfoot, Burley, Rupert and Heyburn, will see less than 1 inch of snow.

Sunday: Partly sunny and cold.
