First Warning Forecast: Messy Morning Commute

Still, a few inches may fall during the same time that many will be traveling to and from Super Bowl parties.

According to the NWS, a quick hitting storm system will bring a brief change over from rain to snow later this afternoon into the early evening hours. This could lead to issues around the time of the morning drive. Accumulations will be updated as we get closer to the weekend. Once again with this system, the track will be key with regards to what exactly we see and how much. If everything comes together in just the right (or wrong) way, there could be an inch or two of snow on the ground for tomorrow morning's commute. The lower elevations (especially towards southern CT) will see little or nothing.

The chance for snow continues Monday into Monday night, the weather service said.

Monday's forecast is mostly sunny with a high of 47 degrees.

By dawn Friday, which is Groundhog Day, wind chill values are expected to be below zero in Buffalo. Tonight, rain and snow likely as temperatures fall quickly.

Today: Mostly cloudy with an 80% chance for rain slowly shifting to snow this evening. And lows Sunday night are forecast to remain above freezing.

Thursday will be cloudy and mild with a 60% chance of rain. The weather service said tonight's low will slip to around 5. Cloudy, with a high near 40. Pavement temperatures will lag behind the actual air temperature, making it tough for the snow to accumulate early.

Partly cloudy skies will hold firm for the first half of the overnight period, but will eventually cloud back up as dawn approaches. Expect additional accumulations through the day on Sunday.

Precipitation is expected to start as rain, the weather service said, but colder air is expected to moves in behind that front.

MONDAY: Rain/snow/mix early. Then some clearing.
