The weather today will continue to be rain showers likely before 3pm, then rain and snow showers likely. Cloudy, with a high near 38. and a low around 25. Northwest wind 6 to 8 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%. Total daytime snow accumulation of less than one inch possible.

A strong area of low pressure will likely move up the East Coast during the first half of the weekend. Although its exact track and strength remains uncertain, there is an Enhanced Severe Storm Threat for damaging wind gusts late Friday night through Saturday. At least scattered instances of tree and power line damage are possible, and could result in blocked roadways or power outages.

Additionally, there is also a Slight Winter Storm Threat Saturday afternoon through early Sunday morning. Accumulating snow and sub-zero wind chill temperatures are possible. If the threat materializes, it may cause travel disruptions.
