The weather service forecast another three inches of snow for northern IL on Sunday. Across southern NH, a touch of freezing drizzle is possible in spots early with a rain shower or two possible throughout the rest of the day.

More than an inch of snow is expected across Western New York between 7 a.m. and 1 p.m. Friday.

Watch for a rain or snow shower mixing with a pocket of sleet, freezing rain or freezing drizzle through Saturday morning. Weather radar maps showed the precipitation to the north and south of Wyandotte County. The exception is far northwestern portions of the area, where you could see some lighter snow accumulations.

Then, snow showers become increasingly likely later Friday morning, forecasters said. New precipitation amounts of less than a tenth of an inch possible. The heavier stuff will move in overnight and should persist until Sunday night, according to the weather service.

Sunday will offer more sunshine and warmer temperatures, as highs jump back into the lower 40s.
