National Weather Service issues Winter Storm Watch for Saturday night

Snow may return. White Valentine's Day forecast for Tri-Cities

A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for central and eastern Hampden county with a Winter Weather Advisory for the remainder of western mass from 7 pm this evening until 7 am Sunday morning. Most of the precipitation will occur through the first half of tonight. Again, however, changing weather conditions could result in alterations to the current forecast.

Monday, Presidents Day, will have a 60 percent chance of precipitation, with rain and thunderstorms likely, the weather service said.

Forecasters warned that driving conditions on some roads in some locations could deteriorate quickly on Saturday night and become extremely slippery. Temperatures will remain above freezing as the snow falls, so it will have a tough time accumulating on roads and sidewalks, collecting mainly on the grass and cars.

"Plan on hard travel conditions", the NWS statement said.

Friday night: Increasing clouds, low around 10.

But wait - today's forecast from the National Weather Service is calling for partly cloudy skies and highs in the low-40s.

Weather data graphs as of 8:40am on Saturday, February 17, 2018 as reported by a weather station located near Ferndale High School. Far northern and western Virginia will have the best chance of a few inches of snow and sleet.

The snow won't last long, but it will pack a quick punch, dropping up to an inch of snow per hour according to Channel 3's Chief Meteorologist Bruce DePrest.

Northwest of D.C., as usual, is where models favor more of a snow event and therefore the highest snowfall totals - although northing too extreme. Highs around 43°F. Wind chill values as low as 25°F. Lows around 34°F. Wind chill values as low as 29°F.

If you have to travel this weekend, please be careful doing so.
