If you didn’t get your fill of snow, ice and bone-chilling cold with winter storms Cleon and Dion, winter storm Electra is right around the corner.

The fifth winter storm of the season is forecast to move from the Mississippi and Ohio Valleys on Friday before pushing to the northeast and into New England later in the weekend. According to the Weather Channel, the storm could drop as much as three inches of snow on parts of Missouri and Ohio.

The storm is then expected to move to the northeast, with possible freezing rain in New York and snow in upstate New York and New England.

Even though winter doesn’t officially start for another week, the U.S. is poised to see more record lows than record highs this year. Despite the chill, the overall trend of global warming remains unchanged.
