Another warm storm will roll into the Boston area over the weekend as Arctic air sounds the retreat over the next few days.

Prior to the rainstorm on Saturday, a period of snow will make some roads and sidewalks slippery Friday.

Temperatures will continue to trend upward through Sunday.

With the rain this weekend, temperatures are projected to reach 50 degrees or higher.

Enough rain may fall to cause urban and poor drainage area flooding Saturday night.

Runoff from the rain and the potential for ice jams could cause some problems on streams and smaller rivers in the region.

Since the air behind the storm is of Pacific origin, temperatures will only trend cooler Monday into Tuesday and will remain above average.
