The weekend winter storm that will start as snow will turn to ice and rain, creating potentially hazardous travel conditions.

The entire region is expected to see snowfall sometime after 1 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 18.

Farther north and inland, the changeover from snow to a wintry mix is expected to come several hours later.

The entire region will see rain overnight into Sunday, Jan. 19, with rain ending farther south by 7 a.m. Sunday and snow showers possible inland until about 8 a.m. Sunday.
