Some of that precipitation could come in the form of freezing rain for parts of northeast Alabama late Sunday night into Monday morning, according to the weather service in Huntsville.
"It's too far out to speculate on how much accumulation we could have", said Corey Mead, meteorologist with the National Weather Service. The overnight low should be near 30 degrees. Wind gusts, or sudden and intense increased bursts of wind, will range between 25-35 miles per hour in the western part of the state, and 30-40 miles per hour in Eastern Massachusetts.
Sunday will remain very cold, but the winds will decrease a bit as the day goes along, with a projected afternoon high temperature of 22 degrees and wind chills in the single digits. "In doing so, that's going to allow the temperature to fall".
The skies may be free of snow, but New Yorkers are facing wind chills that could drop as low as -15 degrees Saturday.
This advisory follows another wind chill warning that was issued Thursday afternoon and was in effect through 10 a.m. Saturday.
In fact, the weather service in Huntsville said lows on Monday night will stay above freezing. Temperatures will warm faster from the south, so there will be a quicker transition from anything frozen to rain.
Quinlan said it should soon start to feel less like winter after a weekend of frigid temperatures.
