National Weather Service forecasters say that lowland snow is possible throughout the mid-valley late Sunday and the coldest temperatures of the winter are likely early next week. The heaviest snowfall, Williams said, would bring about four or five inches between 4 and 10 a.m. Wednesday morning.

WINTER STORM WATCH IN EFFECT FROM SATURDAY EVENING THROUGH SUNDAY MORNING.* WHAT.Heavy snow possible. Generally favoring one to three inches of snow on the grass in these areas with an isolated area getting a little more. Presidents' Day will begin with clear skies, with possible rain showers Monday evening. In New York City, for example, it's unclear for now whether the snow will mix with rain and how much will accumulate.

By Sunday, highs will barely reach above 0° and stiff winds will result in wind chills dipping to near -30° at times. Southerly winds will help boost temperatures to around 40° this afternoon. Many will be on the lower end, though. The exact track of the storm will determine exactly who sees the highest amounts, but as of this morning, computer models are still honing in on southern New England as the location of the higher amounts.

Saturday: Rain. High near 51.

Winds could gust as high as 60 miles per hour along the Rockies, which will create whiteout conditions. Southwest wind around 14 miles per hour, with gusts as high as 21 miles per hour. West winds 10 - 20 miles per hour.

Some freezing rain may persist for a time Saturday night in the Shenandoah Valley. Cloudy, with a high near 43. Chance of precipitation is 60 percent. "Then, Saturday night, the winds are going to pick up and they'll have blizzard-type conditions, with blowing and drifting snow which will make it hard, if not impossible, for snowplows to keep up". Accumulations are possible. Northeast winds 5 - 15 miles per hour.
