Winter Storm Hudson is making a rather messy trail of snow and ice across a large swath of the Tennessee Valley and Ohio Valley and will eventually become a Northeast headache Friday night into Saturday.
Initially, this will melt on the warm pavement, but as temperatures plunge into the teens and 20s, any wet pavement that is not treated will freeze into ice, creating hazardous travel especially during the evening commute.
The weather service says total ice accumulations of about one-tenth of an inch are expected, along with 1-4 inches of snow.
Snow and ice are a major cause of power outages every year. Friday's wind chill values are expected to range from zero to -5 degrees.
On the back side of this system, another blast of Arctic air arrives (high temperatures Saturday will be achieved early in the day).
Road conditions are hazardous to the say the last in this
Monday - Light snow at times. Some blowing and drifting snow will develop. Some areas southeast will still be seeing a wintry mix.

We may be enjoying a "heat wave" in central in right now, but it'll be short-lived as the next winter system makes its way into the area with the potential to drop several inches of snow along its path. A thin glaze of ice is possible from Jonesboro to Helena as well as Blytheville to West Memphis.
A strong cold front was moving through the state on Friday morning, along with scattered rain.
