Cold temperatures and periods of heavy rain will continue through early Saturday.

There is a slim chance part of Southeast Louisiana could see some snow flurries.

It is important to note that not everyone in the Winter Weather Advisory will see snow.

Most likely, there will be a 30- to 40-mile-wide strip of heavier snow, and trying to identify that far in advance is very hard to do. However, if we do see some light accumulations in a few areas, there could be a dusting of light snow mainly on grassy surfaces and elevated areas, again mainly in the western and northern Midlands. Some areas will not have any snow accumulation at all. Air temperature will be in the upper 30s, so no icy travel is expected. It will take a lot to get the soil temperatures low enough to cause accumulations. "Black ice" issues will likely linger into Saturday morning. Expect snow to develop after 3 a.m. and continue through Friday morning.
