Rain was to begin falling Friday night, slowing transforming into freezing rain, sleet and then snow by today, according to the National Weather Service.

Another winter storm threatens the East with massive snow and ice accumulation.

Rain through Friday night could be heavy at times, with totals ranging from 1 to 2 inches.

Here's the afternoon forecast from the National Weather Service.

The short break in winter-like weather in northern New England is over, with the return of cold temperatures starting this weekend. Rain developing Thursday evening will last until sunrise when it becomes sleet and some freezing rain. Given the rain and above freezing temperatures, crew will have a hard time pre-treating the roads. "When all is said and done, we could see up to 1/4 inch of ice accumulation and anywhere from 2-5 inches of snowfall accumulation", said the forecaster. 4 p.m.: 23, wind chills in the teens. Tuesday is partly sunny with the chance for a few snow showers or flurries.

Until all that happens, it's going to be a warm and rainy day, with temperatures topping out in the mid-50s in the morning and dropping steadily toward evening.

Before that, snow is expected to sweep through the Midwest Sunday and Monday.

"1-3" of snow fell across the state Friday. This could cause flooding in low-lying areas-and when the frigid air hits all that water, the Northeast could find itself covered in glacier-like sheets of ice.

Models have shifted the storm further to the south and east taking the potential for the heaviest of the eastward as well into Ohio.

According to AccuWeather's Senior Meteorologist Mike Doll, "At this point, it looks like just enough cold air will invade the storm to create a major problem for travel beginning from central northeastern Arkansas and western Tennessee to northern ME and southern Quebec and northwestern New Brunswick".
