Winter weather returns to the region Friday

Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for most of the Tri-State area until Friday afternoon as snow is expected early in the morning.

Winter Storm Reggie will bring a quick-hitting round of snow to the Northeast Thursday night through Friday and will create travel problems for the morning commute. Sunday's high temperature is now forecast to be 49 degrees, so there's little chance any snow that falls might stick around. A cold front will move in this weekend, with temperatures in the single digits expected Saturday night, and another snow storm could move in Monday night, according to the National Weather Service.

"There is some unstable weather in the long-range forecast that could provide an opportunity for rain", National Weather Service meteorologist Luis Rosa said. Much colder air comes in behind this for Friday.

Temperatures this weekend will average near 15 degrees below normal.

Winds are expected to diminish throughout the day, as skies clear and the high temperature reaches about 60 degrees.

Tonight: A chance of rain between 8 and 10 p.m, then snow.

The main threat from the storms will be a potential for large hail, the weather service said.

A wind advisory is still in effect in Sioux Falls until 7 p.m. Tuesday. At this time, the greatest chance for snowfall accumulations is across south central Kentucky.

The biggest question marks remain for southern parts of Middle Tennessee, where less snow may fall. An earlier report had forecast 3 to 5 inches.

Monday night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 26. Wind gusts are forecast as high as 31 miles per hour. "Friday night temperatures are expected to stay around the upper 20s for the low on Saturday and we will be lucky to have lower 40s for the high".

The high for Saturday is 34, with a low of 17 on Saturday night.
