Roads could be slick in spots tonight… Soaker still on track for Saturday

Roads could be slick in spots tonight… Soaker still on track for Saturday

Parking is banned Sunday on all snow emergency routes, all north-south streets or streets that generally run north and south, all streets south of Wright Street and all streets west of the Mississippi River. Rounds of showers and thunderstorms start early Saturday afternoon and continue into early Sunday morning.

One such trough is now giving outbreaks of rain, sleet and snow across Northern Ireland, southern Scotland and northern England, with some places mostly on hills waking to a carpet of snow this morning.

Plan on slippery road conditions and limited visibility. Some brighter spells with blustery showers on Tuesday afternoon.

The weather service says light snow and ice accumulations are possible in Hunterdon, Morris, Passaic, Somerset, Sussex and Warren counties before temperatures rise and the precipitation turns to plain rain.

And it is just 2-1 that this March ends as the coldest since records began. Cloud will increase from the west during the day. On Monday night, rain will be heavy in many areas.

Met Office meteorologist Martin Bowles said: "It is going to be very wet and windy this weekend and through next week". Blowing and drifting snow is going to be an issue, as wind gusts up to 35 miles per hour are anticipated. Highest temperatures of 7 to 10 degrees.

This'll be a temporary affair with the snow soon melting, except on the higher peaks as the sun comes through to leave fewer showers.

Avoid travel if possible once conditions deteriorate. It also advised people to fill up their cars with fuel today, and think about keeping a blanket or two in their cars in case of a breakdown due to the weather.
