The National Weather Service has posted winter storm warnings and winter weather advisories across portions of New England, upstate New York and northeast Pennsylvania. Additionally, a freezing rain advisory is in effect for the Poconos.
The city of Boston is currently under a winter weather advisory, but winter storm warnings are posted up to Route 128 on the west and north sides of the metro area.
Later Friday into Saturday, an area of low pressure will redevelop and intensify off the Northeast coast. This system will have plenty of moisture associated with it from the western Atlantic, which will bring moderate to heavy rain and snow to the region.
This low-pressure system is then expected to pull away from the Northeast by Saturday night. Enough cold air will be in place over interior New England and portions of upstate New York, for snow and some sleet accumulation to occur.
