Rain is expected to transition to snow late this morning or early this afternoon. This snow however is expected to be patchy before intensifying this evening. The snow is expected to end early Friday morning.
As the track of the low pressure system remains uncertain, precipitation timing and amounts may change.

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow.
