FRIDAY SYSTEM:  By Friday morning, clouds will have filled in and some wintry weather arrives as well.  So right now, it looks like some light to moderate wet snow slides in by daybreak.  This will mix with some rain as the day progresses.  Any accumulation looks to be minimal as temperatures will be near or above freezing.  Regardless, stay alert for changing road conditions as there will be some slop.  The precip ends by late afternoon with highs holding in the upper 30s.
