Temps Rise Friday, But Snow on Way for Weekend

Between 2 and 3 inches of snow could fall on the city Saturday.



    Forecasters predict temperatures to turn unseasonably mild Friday with highs near 50 degrees, but this weekend will sure feel like February.

    The chance for snow returns Saturday, with 2 to 3 inches of accumulation expected in the city and 4 to 6 inches predicted for central and eastern Long Island.

    Meteorologists say light snow is expected to develop early Saturday and continue through the evening. Computer models continue to trend higher in terms of snow totals, so the anticipated accumulation numbers could rise.
