More snow will accumulate Monday.
The storm was expected to move east Friday night through Saturday, hitting parts of the Northeast in addition to the Tennessee and Ohio Valleys, the Weather Channel reported. Snow accumulations of 2 to 4 inches with total ice accumulations of one tenth to two tenths of an inch are expected.
Winter storm Hunter also brought snow to Kansas and blizzard conditions to North Dakota. After weeks of below-freezing temperatures, most of the East coast warmed to above average this week, with almost two dozen high temperature records possibly set Friday afternoon.
An ice and storm storm is expected Friday and Friday night. "Ice accumulations of 0.1" or less are possible, before the changeover to snow. The metro area will see around 2-3 inches, WLWT chief meteorologist Kevin Robinson said.
Indiana Department of Transportation crews will begin working Thursday at midnight to pre-treat and patrol interstates, according to INDOT spokesman LaMar Holliday.
The storm will sweep through the Great Plains and parts of the mid-South, bringing cold temperatures to the Tennessee, Mississippi and OH valleys by Friday morning and spreading heavy rain and thunderstorms into the Carolinas, ABC News reported.
"So much can change", he said. This rapid change to colder temperatures means many will see rain change to freezing rain, then sleet and finally snow.
After the moisture moves out, the entire Northeast will once again see frigid temperatures, with the highs failing to reach even the freezing mark through the weekend.
Day: Mostly sunny, with a high near 31. Breaks of sunshine will develop during the day Saturday, with an afternoon high temperature of 22 degrees.
SUNDAY: Partly cloudy skies and frigid temperatures continue, with a high temperature of 23 degrees.
