Flood warning, winter weather advisory across southern New England

The weather service said a flood watch means a potential for flooding exists based on forecasts. Skow said temperatures won't warm up until Sunday. A cold front will move through Kentucky around daybreak Friday, with temperatures quickly dropping throughout the rest of the day.

Thursday, it was 56 degrees.

Thursday brought freezing rain and snow to Lawrence, and road conditions led to two single-vehicle rollover accidents Thursday morning, according to Sgt. Kristen Channel of the Douglas County Sheriff's Office.

A flood watch remains in effect until 1 p.m. Saturday, with heavy rain and melting snow expected across the state.

Snow totals were projected to be lower along the Ohio River south of Ohio County and into central West Virginia with a couple of inches of snow and then to less than an inch possibly in Charleston and Beckley. Southeast wind 5 to 10 miles per hour.

Rain will begin early Friday with up to an inch and more coming Friday night and early Saturday.

It was the deep freeze during the last week of the month that really lowered the average temperature to levels far below normal. The alerts warn of mixed wintry precipitation late Wednesday night turning to snow Thursday morning.

In addition, Long Islanders are urged to remain off of all frozen bodies of water - such as lakes, ponds - as increased temperatures and excessive rainfall may cause ice surfaces to weaken and become risky.

Then the snow returns. Cloudy skies will gradually become sunny and temperatures will rise to a high of 31.

Monday will be mostly sunny and cold with highs in the 20s.

Fans heading to the Patriots-Titans game in Foxboro on Saturday night are asked to exercise caution amid the risky conditions.

Dr. M.L. KING DAY / MONDAY: Mostly cloudy skies and cold temperatures continue, with a high temperature of 32 degrees. Winds will be coming from the northwest at 9 to 18 miles per hour, with gusts as high as 28 miles per hour.
