       New Yorkers brace for arctic cold this Saturday night

A gradual warmup will get going in earnest today following another cold night that saw lows fall into the teens in north Alabama and 20s all the way into south Alabama.

However, it is possible that some travel problems could develop, especially on bridges and overpasses, before temperatures warm sufficiently to cause the precipitation to change to all rain.

The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) will have crews on standby to battle the freezing rain and ice storm that may hit the St. Louis area Sunday. Boone had a low of 6 degree this morning with a wind gust of 63 miles per hour just after midnight. The advisories were issued due to a combination of factors, including the persistence of dangerously icy road conditions and wind chill factors of as low as 10 degrees.

Sunday will bring snow and sleet before 2 p.m., then sleet between 2 and 3 p.m. and then rain after 3 p.m. The chance of precipitation is 80 percent. Most of MA received more than a foot of snow with some towns seeing as much as 17 inches, according to NWS observations.
