NEW YORK -- Just a week after the second largest snowstorm on record for the New York area, we may not be done with snow quite yet.

A weak area of low pressure will cross through the Northeast Friday, bringing the chance of rain, or if temperatures drop enough -- snow.

Skies are clouding up ahead of the system Thursday night and temperatures are expected to drop once again to the freezing mark in the city. The surrounding suburbs will go subfreezing, bringing another round of black ice for untreated surfaces.

A few snow or rain showers will cross through the region on Friday. But for now, surface temperatures are expected to be above freezing so most of any snow that falls should melt upon contact with the ground. The exception could be grassy surfaces where short burst of heavier snow could drop a quick dusting.

Temperatures in the afternoon are expected to be around 40 degrees.

The weekend features a mild trend with temperatures climbing from the lower to upper 40s. High pressure will keep the region nice and dry with generally sunny skies.

By Monday, temperatures could climb to 50 degrees before a cold front moves in bringing the chance of a late day shower.
