A quick-moving system that bringing accumulating snowfall to the region Thursday night into Friday morning will be just a preview of a much more significant snowstorm expected in a bigger weekend storm.

Travel will be hazardous due to poor visibility and snow-covered roads, particularly across the interior for the Friday morning commute, the National Weather Service said.

Areas north of I-84 are expected to see 2 to 4 inches of accumulation, with 2 to 3 inches north of I-287 and the Merritt Parkway and 1 to 2 inches south of those roadways. For the latest snowfall projections, see first image above.

Wednesday, Jan. 16 will be mostly sunny with a high in the mid-30s.

Thursday, Jan. 17 will be partly sunny but colder, with a high of only around 30 degrees.

Snow is expected to arrive after 10 p.m. Thursday and continue overnight before changing to a mix of rain, snow and freezing rain. Precipitation will end by around 10 a.m. Friday, Jan. 18.

The rest of the day will be cloudy with a high temperature climbing to around 40 degrees.

The major storm is expected to arrive after 4 p.m.on Saturday, Jan. 19 on a cloudy day with the high reaching the mid-30s.

Snow will mix with rain and sleet at times, and the storm could last 24 hours through Sunday night, Jan. 20, with the system wrapping up with evening snow showers. Up to 6 to 12 inches of snow accumulation is possible, although there is still some uncertainty about the strength and exact track of the weekend storm.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Monday, Jan. 21, will be mostly sunny and frigid, with a high of only about 20 degrees.
