Expect possible winter driving conditions overnight in the higher elevations.

Overall, the precipitation is expected to be showery in nature. Accumulating snow depends on heavy showers hitting roadways in the higher elevations during the colder overnight hours. Black ice is also a possibility.

Anyone planing on traveling tonight, should be prepared for wintry travel. In addition, it is highly recommended anyone planning on venturing out this weekend in the higher terrain need to be prepared for wintry conditions.
