As we continue into the daylight hours, clouds will hang tough as the storm system passes overhead. Rain showers will continue in a mostly light fashion and scatter through the day. Another few tenths of an inch of rain can be expected with up to a half inch southeast.

Rain will transition over to snow in some spots as temperatures cool through the day. As the snow falls, it may be accompanied by rain, or it could just be snow. The only accumulation expected will be on cold surfaces such as grass or elevated roads. If a quick burst of snow moves overhead there could be more accumulation but expect it to melt on roads quickly as road surface temperatures are not forecasted to hit freezing until early Sunday morning, when the showers have ended. Just be prepared for slippery conditions through tonight and early Sunday morning.

All told, snow amounts on cold surfaces will only amount to a few tenths of an inch at best. Up to an inch possible in the higher terrain southeast. Whatever little snow does accumulate today and tonight will melt quickly through Sunday as temperatures warm into the middle 40s with a little more sunshine.
