Colder air will continue to invade the storm in the Northeast, bringing snow to parts of western New York and Pennsylvania, the mid-Atlantic and New England into Friday morning.

Slow movement of the storm has allowed cold air to catch up with lingering moisture.

Motorists and pedestrians are cautioned into Friday morning as untreated areas made wet by natural melting during the day can turn icy during the evening hours as temperatures fall a few degrees.


A band of light to moderate snow will be over western New York, northwestern Pennsylvania and into portions of southern Ontario. Spotty snow showers will occur elsewhere across the interior Northeast.

Portions of western New York and northwestern Pennsylvania can see an additional few inches of snow. Locations that will continue to have to shovel and plow snow into Friday morning include Erie and Bradford, Pennsylvania, Jamestown, New York, and Toronto.



The worst travel conditions will be along a portion of Interstate-90, from Buffalo, New York, to Erie, Pennsylvania. Portions of I-80 and Route 322 in western Pennsylvania can be slushy and slippery as well.

Just enough snow can fall in the swath from the interior mid-Atlantic to western New England to coat grassy and elevated surfaces.

Intermittent snow will travel to the I-95 corridor into Friday morning, including Boston, New York City, Philadelphia and Baltimore, with the aid of gusty west winds. Flurries can reach the Washington, D.C., area on a couple of occasions.

For fans heading to the Army-Navy Football Classic in Baltimore on Saturday, sunshine will give temperatures a small boost and winds will ease up a bit.

After a temperature dip into the end of the week, the mercury will trend back to average levels this weekend, and then above average for much of next week. Typical highs during the middle of December are generally in the middle to upper 30s over the central Appalachians and the middle 40s in the I-95 corridor.
