Wintry weather for part of the area Friday

Colder temperatures could bring slight chance of snow, sleet
With very cold air aloft, there have been several reports of sleet scattered around the state.
Tomorrow: Chance for snow flurries throughout the morning with a winter weather advisory in effect until noon. Best spot to see minor accumulations of snow will be along I-20 and I-85 in North Georgia.
This will push the highest chances of any accumulating snow well east of the viewing area and include locations such as Baton Rouge, New Orleans and into southern MS and Alabama where a Winter Weather Advisory is now in effect.
Snow arrives in New England at the south coast on Saturday morning, it'll be warm enough that it's mostly rain on Cape Cod and along the immediate shoreline.
And... a Winter Storm Warning has been issued for parts of southwest Alabama and southeast MS, with 1 to 3 inches possible in the warning area.
With temperatures above freezing and warm ground temperatures, any daytime accumulations should be confined mainly to grassy areas and vehicle tops, rather than roads.
The rest of the Southeast should see mainly a cold rain. This will most likely be in isolated areas.
Take caution while driving as some bridges and overpasses could develop patches of ice overnight while temperatures dip below freezing across the South Plains.
Friday will be an active weather day with cloudy skies, colder temperatures and a good chance of rain and snow. Temperatures will drop to near 40 across the Pee Dee and into the lower 40s in the Grand Strand.
Overrunning moisture to the north of a lingering front to the south will align with colder air aloft to generate snow potential in parts of the western Carolinas, but the areal extent, coverage, and intensity will be modulated largely by topography.
This weekend is on track to bring high temperatures back to above average levels with afternoons reaching the mid 60s with dry conditions.
