Weather: Major mess heading into the weekend (1/12 AM)

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

Temperatures in some parts of Orlando may see a 15-degree difference from Friday into Saturday, according to weather forecasts. Skies are expected to generally be clear.

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.

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

You would if you flew from the Southern Hemisphere to the Northern Hemisphere like 2018's first viral flight of the year. The International Date Line zig-zags from the North Pole to the South Pole through the sparsely populated Pacific Ocean.

"The ground is completely frozen, so in the event of a rain event, the water has no place to go", said Frank Kelley, deputy fire chief, Rocky Hill Fire Department.

As of early Thursday afternoon, no areas of New Jersey or New York City were under flood advisories, but many areas just north of this region - including the lower Hudson Valley and southern CT - have flood watches in effect from Friday morning through Saturday afternoon. A high of 22 was expected Friday before an overnight low of 8 degrees Friday night as lake effect snow could lead to snow showers in the area.

SATURDAY: Mostly cloudy with a wintry mix. The record high for the month was set on January 29, 2013, when the temperature reached 63 degrees.

The cold temperatures will continue throughout the weekend and next week, the weather service says. Skow said there is a "very slight" chance of light snow flurries in Lawrence on Friday, but that snowfall is more likely in areas west of Lawrence.
