Ice, freezing rain possible Sunday

National Weather Service forecasters in some parts of NY are warning residents to expect risky wind chills from -10 to -25 from late Thursday through Saturday evening. Chance of precipitation is 90 percent.

The record precipitation total on January 3 was 0.70 inches in 1906. Areas of blowing snow.

Tuesday night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 23. New precipitation amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch possible.

That has prompted a wind chill advisory for all of New Jersey, along with New York City and eastern Pennsylvania, effective from Friday through Sunday morning. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 44.

Hall County's interim emergency management director, Casey Ramsey, put the word out to first responders on Friday, warning of a "very high probability" of freezing rain overnight Sunday and into the morning on Monday.

Today, it will be mostly sunny with a high near 24, and an east northeast wind of 5 to 8 miles per hour, the weather service said. The chance of precipitation is 20 percent.

With a few exceptions along the Shore and in South Jersey, most areas of the state have not had temperatures reaching higher than the freezing mark of 32 degrees since December 26 or December 27. The high on Thursday will be 29 degrees, before temperatures dip again to 10 degrees, the weather service said. "It's important to point out that driving conditions are predicted to be hard - so traveling to damage locations will be challenging and hazard-level winds could temporarily prevent workers from going up in bucket trucks to restore power". The company also suggests customers keep all wireless communication devices fully-charged in case of a power outage.
