TRI-STATE-The Tri-State area probably won't bear the brunt of a winter storm this weekend, said Dave Houk, an AccuWeather meteorologist.
Snow from Sunday's storm likely will fall north into the mountains and northeastern Pennsylvania, where temperatures are expected to be colder, Houk said.
"I think the major threat (in the Tri-State area) is wind and rain." he said.
AccuWeather predicts that rain will begin today in the Tri-State area and last until Sunday night.
Temperatures could reach 54 degrees today and dip to a low of 40, according to AccuWeather. On Sunday, the forecast calls for a high of 48 degrees and a low of 34.
Houk said 1 or 2 inches of rain could fall this weekend and cause creeks, streams and streets to flood. That amount of rain shouldn't be enough to cause river flooding, he said.
