A widespread snow event is forecast for much of Friday into early Saturday across the state. There remains some uncertainty with respect to actual snowfall totals, but confidence is increasing in the timing and location of the event. In addition to the widespread snow, blustery north to northeast winds are expected and will likely cause significant visibility restrictions and blowing and drifting snow late Friday into Saturday. Then, an Arctic blast of bitter cold temperatures and wind chills filters into the state over the weekend. Sub-zero wind chills are anticipated, with many locations dipping as low as 20 to 30 below zero by Saturday night into Sunday morning.
