Wind chills will be below zero for many areas through Saturday morning.
Saturday will be dry but very cold.
Attention then shifts to a major winter storm on Sunday night into Monday but not because of snow for most of us.
Warm air is forecast to be drawn in from the Atlantic Ocean which will cause rain to fall during most of the storm.
Still, even a quick dose of snow on Sunday night followed by heavy rain and strong winds could pose travel problems.
Any wintry precipitation can rapidly cover roads and make for slippery travel at the onset of the storm before any accumulation is washed away by rain.
Farther inland, the northern and western suburbs will lie within a battle zone between warm and cold air associated with the storm. Heavy snow will transition to sleet, freezing rain and rain.
Northwestern New Jersey and the lower Hudson Valley could face the sloppy to dangerous travel conditions.
Areas farther to the west and north will see the most snow.
Here’s the projected snow total map from meteorologist Lee Goldberg:
AccuWeather Alert: Bitter cold. High 19.
