THE LATEST ON THE WINTER STORM FOR FRIDAY INTO SATURDAY

Freezing rain and sleet through the early afternoon into the evening. The potential for ice accumulation will increase into Friday evening and night. Colder air will push in through evening, changing the wintry mix over to snow showers through early Saturday morning. Heavy snow is possible.

It is possible for 4 to 8 inches of snow across our region. Heavier snow of 8 to 12 inches is possible if the storm slips to our south and east, and 2 to 3 inches if it pushes to the north and west.

Less snow would mean more ice accumulation, which could range from a trace to a glaze of 0.25″ or more.
