2 maps predicting how much snow we'll get through Friday morning

The National Weather Service says a cold front will bring rain and some snow to the area today and tonight, but all eyes are on the forecast for Super Bowl Sunday. That also leaves the question whether we will see rain or snow showers during the day.

Precipitation is expected to start as rain, the weather service said, but colder air is expected to moves in behind that front. A significant snow accumulation for the higher elevations of the southern Poconos is possible. It's very well possible sloppy conditions will heavily impact travel to and from these parties but again, with the uncertainty at this time, it's still too early to pinpoint exactly who is going to see what and how much.

Saturday, partly sunny, with a high near 42.

Wednesday: A chance of rain and snow. Cloudy, with a high near 47. A northwesterly wind will gust to 30-40 miles per hour and wind chill temperatures will be in the single digits and teens most of the day.

Friday Night: A 20 percent chance of snow. Low around 15. Northwest wind 9 to 14 miles per hour, with gusts as high as 25 miles per hour. Chance of precipitation is 90 percent.

There is a small risk for a rain or snow shower into Thursday morning. Cloudy through mid morning, then gradual clearing, with a temperature falling to around 24 by 5 p.m. Northwest wind 10 to 16 miles per hour.

The National Weather Service has issued a hazardous weather outlook for Sunday for an area including Greater Burke County.

Overnight lows will be around 10 and highs on Friday will be in the low- to mid-teens.

Saturday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 32. Wind southwest 20 km/h becoming northwest 30 gusting to 50 in the afternoon. Tuesday night should be mostly cloudy, with patchy fog and lows around 37. "Clouds will increase throughout the day with light snow of 1-4" overspreading Saturday night into Sunday along another frontal boundary. The track of this low as it passes near New England will determine the precipitation type. The good news is that the bulk of the snow will be wrapped up to mainly just flakes at that point. Night: Cloudy with 60 per cent chance of flurries. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 12. The weather service said tonight's low will slip to around 5. Cloudy, with a high near 46.
