We're back into the deep freeze this Friday, with temperatures in the single digits and wind chills below zero. The wind and bitter cold will gradually subside as we head into the weekend, but with the change comes the likelihood of widespread snow.

Lake effect snow will continue Friday night as winds gradually shift into the north. Mostly cloudy skies will keep overnight lows in check - still near or below zero in many areas. Cold weather Saturday morning will turn less cold on Saturday afternoon as highs climb into the 20s. Lake effect snow will continue to fall, especially north of the Mohawk Valley. Here's a look at the snowfall forecast heading into the weekend:

Widespread snow is expected on Sunday and will likely cause slick roadways, especially later in the day. Low pressure drops in from the northwest and snow breaks out before daybreak. Snow continues for most of the day, with the peak of the event expected in the late afternoon to early evening. Here's the early call on snowfall:

Snow ends Sunday night to be replaced by lake effect snow and cold for Monday. Highs once again in the 20s.
