Light snow will develop Saturday late in the afternoon. Overnight, the snow will turn steady and sometimes heavy, mixing with sleet and rain, especially across Westchester and Rockland counties. Farther north, expect colder temperatures and better snow chances.

By Sunday morning, most areas will see heavy rain, sleet or snow, which will eventually change to snow and ice during the day. Expect very dangerous travel conditions as temperatures drop below freezing during the day.

More bad news is expected Sunday evening as temperatures will drop dramatically, causing a flash freeze situation. Lows will be around 5 degrees with dangerous wind chills, freezing any wet surface in a very short period of time.

Monday will be mostly sunny but very cold. The high will be around 15 degrees.
