A Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect through this evening and ends at noon Saturday for Stark, Knox, Fulton, Peoria, Mason, Tazewell, and Logan counties. These areas have the best chance at seeing 2-4 inches of snowfall along with slippery road conditions and reduced visibility as some heavier snow bands can set up in these areas. Travel conditions will be hazardous Friday evening into the overnight.

Snowfall amounts will taper off as you move east. Where the snow falls the longest, in our western counties, is where we expect the higher snow totals between 3-4 inches.

Snow will end early Saturday, but expect slick spots to continue through the morning commute. The day will start off cloudy, but we will see decreasing clouds throughout the day, so should see some sun in the afternoon. Highs will be in the mid-upper twenties Saturday and Sunday.
