Temperatures will reach a high of 21 today in Wyandotte County, with a wind chill between minus 10 and zero and a north wind of 9 miles per hour, according to the National Weather Service.

Boston has a slight chance of rain early Friday with more expected after 11 a.m. continuing overnight into early Saturday afternoon, according to the service's seven-day forecast for the city. Skies are expected to generally be clear. Monday carries the potential for light snow.

Bitterly cold weather has returned to the area, and residents should not expect temperatures to rise anytime soon.

"People should expect travel conditions to range from poor to extremely hard from Saturday to Saturday night in the storm's wake", according to AccuWeather's senior meteorologist Alex Sosnowski. Eventual totals may reach over two inches by Saturday morning, but some of that will fall as snow or sleet.

Facebook is working on a new section for local news
Facebook announced Wednesday that it's releasing a new tool aimed at making it easier to find legitimate local news stories. The users in the batches in which the test is going on can access the icon on the bottom of the menu in their mobile app.


Rainfall amounts from 1 to 2 inches are expected on Friday, with locally higher amounts possible, along with temperatures in the 50s.

Now Friday night, once the cold front moves in, temperatures drop dramatically, creating a flash freeze.

Visibility was mostly a mile or less - often much less, the National Weather Service said.

Not only does the region have a flood watch, there are winter storm warnings in effect for northern New England due to the rapid change from rain to freezing rain and snow. By Friday morning, temperatures will already be close to 50 and I would not be surprised if some areas to the south of Utica get close to 60 degrees by Friday evening.
