Saturday morning rain could mix with snow with temperatures in the upper-30s, the weather service says.

A flood watch remains in effect until 1 p.m. Saturday, with heavy rain and melting snow expected across the state. By noon, thermometers will show 17 degrees and people outdoors will feel like its negative six.

The temperature will soar to about 60 degrees, the weather service said.

The Weather Channel reports an extreme upper atmosphere affect in Spearfish, S.D., where the temperature plummeted 49 degrees in two minutes. "Temperatures will rapidly fall from the 50s and into the 20s by Saturday afternoon.resulting in a Flash Freeze".

Rain combining with melting snowpack may generate "urban and isolated" flooding, and the weather agency on Friday issued a flood watch for all of MA and all of Southern New England that remains in effect until Saturday afternoon.

It will be rainy, then turn cold and possibly become pretty slippery in the midstate this weekend.

Friday's forecast calls for mostly sunny skies with a high of 42 and an overnight low of 21.

The National Weather Service on Tuesday issued a flood advisory for Stanislaus, San Joaquin and Sacramento counties as wet winter storms push through Northern California. Some areas could come close to 4 inches of rain.

The combination of moderate to heavy rain, on top of snow melt and the possibility of isolated ice jams along area rivers and streams, presents the threat of localized street flooding. 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. The watch is set to run from late Thursday night through Saturday afternoon. Lows will be around 40 degrees, with a south wind 10 to 14 miles per hour. Total sleet accumulation of less than a half inch is expected.
