Rain, fog, more rain then snow and sleet coming

A multi-faceted storm will thaw the ice on waterways, bring some heavy rain and flooding in some areas, then ice, snow and a freeze-up into the weekend.

The storm may bring major travel disruptions throughout the region.

Some areas will be at risk for flooding, while others may face power outages and property damage related to freezing rain, followed by snow and a freeze-up.

Rounds of heavy rain and fog will be the triggers for airline and ground transportation delays from Virginia to coastal Maine, according to AccuWeather.com.

The National Weather Service said watch for areas of fog Friday morning amid periods of rain.

Friday’s low here will be 48 as warm air continues rushing north.

Rain will continue through Friday night with a high near 58.

Up to an inch could fall by midnight night … or more.

Tonight is when it gets trickly.

Forecasters say watch for rain, snow, and sleet before 1a.m. Saturday, then occasional snow, possibly mixed with freezing rain overnight tonight before turning to snow by daybreak Saturday.

Two to four inches of snow are possible here, with more on higher elevations.

Saturday will bring occasional snow, mainly before 1p.m., with a high near 26.

Sunday should be mostly sunny, with a high near 22.
