There were warnings that the snow is expected to heavier and wetter because of the warmer temperatures which could lead to branches coming down on power lines.

"Plan on hard travel conditions", the weather service said in a statement.

Temperatures are expected to rise into the 40s on Sunday afternoon and the snow will begin to melt. Although the accompanying brisk wind will help to evaporate some of the rain puddles, icy spots are still possible (even likely) for Saturday morning.

A stronger system arrives Saturday with more rain and mountain snow. Between a tenth and quarter-inch of rain is possible.

A weekend snowstorm is on the way and promises to blanket the region with up to 6 inches of snow. Little or no ice accumulation expected.

Saturday night: Rain, snow and freezing rain, possibly mixed with sleet before 3 a.m., then a slight chance of snow between 3 and 4 a.m.
