Wind chill and patchy ice for Friday
Overnight showers will freeze
Rain and snow showers are expected to clear out of the state by around mid-morning. Since there isn't a lot of rain here, I am not expecting any widespread ice issues, but there could be some, especially in eastern areas.
Behind the front, the wind from the west/northwest begins to crank up. Wind chill temperatures fall all day to near 0° north to the low teens south.
The absolute worst case scenario for wind speed has not changed much. At this point a safe estimate on wind speed is gusts generally will top out in the 30-40 mph range, with higher gusts possible in the higher elevations of the north country.
The upper level low driving this wind and cold into the region may strengthen as it tilts northeast. The worst of the gusty winds appear over by Friday evening. It appears to be a very slow steady drop into Saturday night.
Bundle up as you head out, and be prepared for some spotty power outages.
