Rain will mix with snow, overnight, but the snow will win out by 6 a.m. Ray Petelin says snow showers will continue through the day.
Since rain is coming in first, crews will not be able to pre-treat the roads in anticipation of the snow.
Most spots will see up to 2 inches, however the typical areas that see more, like the ridges and I-80 corridor, will see 2 to 4 inches. Scattered snow will continue into the weekend.MORE NEWS: Pfizer, BioNTech Begin Clinical Trial For Omicron-Specific COVID-19 Vaccine
