A warm front will lift into the Northeast on Friday afternoon, bringing the first round of snow in a narrow band as the moisture pushes into the cold air. The snow will become more widespread and heavier Friday night into Saturday morning.
On Saturday, the low pressure center will lift to the north. Rounds of heavy snow will push through New England, gradually ending in the afternoon and evening as the system moves out into the Atlantic Ocean.
