Saturday will offer no respite from the frigid temperatures, with highs predicted to be around 19 degrees and wind chill readings as cold as minus 2 degrees, according to the weather service.

While the low temperature Friday will be around 32, Saturday's low will only be around 10.

More rain is expected in the Sierra Nevada region, with rainfall of 3 to 4 inches expected.

Temperatures are expected to dip into the 20s Saturday night for the Patriots-Titans playoff game. This could be a big deal as ice accumulates Friday night into Saturday morning.

Heavy rain is expected to move through Massachusetts Friday and persist into Saturday morning before a flash freeze triggered by dropping temperatures creates slick conditions on the roadways.

Then the snow returns. A flood watch last late Friday, the weather service said. Low pressure will develop right overhead with the snow possibly heavy at times and maybe enough warm for rain and snow at the coast, changing to snow.

Today's rain is expected to transition into a wintery mix around midnight and into snow later. One to two inches of sleet and snow accumulation is expected.

Colder weather is in the forecast for Sunday and early next work.

As of 11 a.m. Friday, meteorologists said water was starting to recede. Highs on Saturday will be 20 to 30 degrees lower than today's highs, and will likely be reached early in the day with temperatures holding steady or falling through the day. Wind chills are expected to be below freezing and speeds are expected to be between 10-25 miles per hour.
