Icy conditions with plenty of sleet swept through New England early on Thursday. Hours later, a similar mix returned, with snow, sleet and freezing rain forecast to linger into Friday morning ahead of a weekend cooldown.

A Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect through 4 a.m. on Friday for all of Massachusetts with the exception of the South Coast and the Cape as winter weather makes its way across the state.

The latest wave of precipitation began arriving around 8 p.m. after snow and sleet inundated most of New Hampshire and Massachusetts through the morning and into the afternoon in some areas. Precipitation is expected to wind down between midnight and 1 a.m. 

Temperatures will rise on Friday morning, pushing close to 40 degrees and improving conditions for the morning commute, though some slick spots could remain.

The warmer weather in the morning likely won’t last long, as temperatures fall again Friday afternoon. 

Wind gusts are expected to accompany the Friday afternoon cooldown, bringing winds between 30 and 40 miles-per-hour in some places. 

Wind will likely back down over the weekend. But cold weather is forecast to remain in place.
