Heavy wet snow is possible with accumulations from 3 to 6 inches possible.
Motorists should plan on difficult travel conditions. Significant reductions in visibility are possible. Broken tree limbs due to heavy snow may result in isolated power outages.

The precipitation will start as rain but change over to snow from north to south Friday night, tapering off Saturday morning. Significant accumulations will be possible, but there are still some questions about where exactly the band of heaviest snow will set up. Stay tuned to the latest forecasts and possible advisories or warnings.
