"We are not expecting the ice or the sleet and snow accumulations to reach warning criteria", National Weather Service meteorologist Ingrid Amberger said.

Temperatures in some parts of Orlando may see a 15-degree difference from Friday into Saturday, according to weather forecasts.

Tonight, the low will be around 8 with a wind chill reading between minus 2 and 3, plus a north wind of 7 to 9 miles per hour, according to the weather service. Monday carries the potential for light snow.

Friday, widespread, steady rain takes over as temperatures gradually fall from the 50s and 40s into this afternoon with a south wind gusting up to 30 miles per hour. There could be 1.5 to 2.5 inches of rain in some areas.

The high will barely get above freezing at 34 on Saturday, followed by a low of 13 into Saturday night. A flood watch is in effect for the southern and midcoast areas from Friday afternoon though Saturday morning.

Forecasters from the weather service's NY regional office, which handles parts of New Jersey, say some isolated areas could get drenched with up to 3 inches of rain, and some streets with poor drainage could become flooded.

Thursday brought freezing rain and snow to Lawrence, and road conditions led to two single-vehicle rollover accidents Thursday morning, according to Sgt. Kristen Channel of the Douglas County Sheriff's Office.

"Sunday there will be not much change in the temperature with a high of 54 and a low of 36", Platt said. Another inch of rain is possible through Friday afternoon.

After temperatures climb statewide Friday into the high 40s or even low 50s degrees Fahrenheit, the precipitation will clear out by Sunday morning, leaving behind temperatures ranging from around 10 degrees in the far north to the low 20s in the south.
