An upper trough continues to move through the eastern third of the country today with mainly rain though some in the higher elevations of western NC and VA, eastern WV and central PA could see some freezing rain early. The bigger story over the weekend however will be a winter storm developing early today in eastern CO and tracking through the central Plains and into the eastern Great Lakes. Widespread accumulating snows are likely at least in the 2-5 inch range in NE, southern IA, north central IL, southeast WI and central and northern lower MI with some receiving as much as 8 or more before ending.
