Winter weather advisory has taken effect in Jackson County

The National Weather Service lifted the winter weather advisory for Suffolk, Norfolk, and northern Bristol counties Sunday morning, but cold temperatures are still expected, an official said. Total ice accumulation of a tenth to one quarter inch is expected. There will be pockets of rain, freezing rain and sleet throughout southern New England, the weather service says, bringing along some icing.

Heavy rain could start falling Saturday and continue through Monday, prompting a flood watch for Tug Hill, where remaining snow will add to the runoff problems.

"Icing will be light and is not expected to cause damage to trees or result in power outages", the National Weather Service said in the advisory. "Travel will be hard".

Rain will change to freezing rain on Saturday - you can expect to see it into the evening hours.

Also in effect is a lakeshore flood watch for areas of Niagara, Orleans, and Monroe counties that abut Lake Ontario.

The latest, local NWS forecast calls for rain, freezing rain and sleet Saturday night and into Sunday morning, followed by rain after about 11 a.m.
