Get ready for a sudden drop in temperature after midnight. The worst should happen between 3am and 6am.

It will be a very cold weekend with the possibility of rain changing to snow.

That's right. Snow.

Don't panic. This will not be the BLIZZARD OF '93!

However, be careful if on the road as bridges and overpasses may be snow-covered.

We shouldn't get more than half an inch to an inch.
