UNDATED - A powerful storm will reach the area this weekend. In the meantime, a light snowfall will occur on Friday, followed by a dry and mild Saturday ahead of the storm.

As the main storm approaches, precipitation will begin as a wintry mix on Saturday night, then turn to rain on Sunday as warmer air lifts north into the region. A few thunderstorms are also possible late Sunday afternoon and evening.

Around one inch of rain is expected, which could lead to minor river flooding and urban flooding (especially where storm drains are plugged by snow piles).
