The heaviest snow will be from now until 7 p.m. so the commute will be slow. This is a heavy wet snow compared to the past few snow events.

Friday morning will start with clouds and flurries, but it will be sunny and mild by the afternoon with highs near 30. Saturday will be great to be outdoors with a light wind, sunshine and highs in the lower 30s.

Another storm system moves in for Sunday but with highs near 40, it will be raining until Sunday night when sleet and snow mixes in.
