"There is plenty of ice in place on area creeks and rivers, and the primary risk for flooding will be from ice jams", the weather service said. It is going to be a rough day for travel with snow and ice north, and rain perhaps ending is freezing rain and snow south by afternoon.

Per the service's report, released this morning, rain is expected to enter the area Thursday afternoon and evening, marking the front edge of an arriving cold front. We're watching the potential for some snow early next week around Tuesday or Wednesday.

After a Thursday night of heavy rain and melting snowpack, flood warnings remained in effect on Friday morning for parts of Wood, Tyler, Ohio, Hancock, Marshall, Wetzel, Brooke, Monongalia and Marion counties. Scattered snow showers are possible during the day. Lows will be around 40 degrees, with a south wind 10 to 14 miles per hour.

After a high of 35 Thursday, the temperature will fall to near zero overnight. Total snow accumulations of 1 to 2 inches are possible in east central and southeast IL, where up to one tenth of an inch of ice accumulation is also expected.

Saturday will offer no respite from the frigid temperatures, with highs predicted to be around 19 degrees and wind chill readings as cold as minus 2 degrees, according to the weather service. The snow and wind combined are expected to create low visibility and hazardous driving conditions. We will have partly cloudy skies with highs in the teens and 20s.
