Tuesday, it will be sunny and cold, with a high near 14, the weather service said.

The National Weather Service in Buffalo issued a flood warning for Livingston and other counties in Western New York around 4:40 a.m. Friday morning.

Ice accumulations would vary, Casey said, with up to 1/10 inch of ice possible in the Northern Panhandle.

Once the rain stops Saturday, the temperatures will drop, causing the melted snow to become ice.

The National Weather Service predicts that Sunbury will receive less than a half inch of new snow/sleet accumulation tonight and less than one inch of new snow accumulation on Saturday.

Heavy rain and melting snow are expected to create flooding concerns by Friday afternoon.

"But this is a complicated weather setup and there's a lot of uncertainty, especially in the mid-Ohio Valley", Casey cautioned.

Thursday night's wintry mix of precipitation is expected to give way to partly cloudy conditions until Sunday night, when the forecast calls for an 80 percent chance of light snow.

Emergency management officials said they were dealing with flooding in parts of Malone starting Friday morning.

The low will be about 7 degrees but temperatures will rise to about 19 degrees by 5 a.m. on Saturday.

The winter weather advisory should end at 10 a.m. tomorrow, said the National Weather Service. There is a chance of flash freeze (quick freeze over) on area roadways in southern areas at some point Saturday AM or midday (far southeast).
