A winter storm warning for heavy snow is in effect from 10 p.m. this evening until 7 p.m. Friday, the National Weather Service announced.
Accumulations of four to eight inches of snow are predicted by the weather service.
Snow will be heavy at times late tonight and into Friday afternoon, according to the National Weather Service.
Travel will be difficult, especially for the Friday morning commute, the service warns.
"Snow density may be the heavy, wet type, hindering removal," the National Weather Service said. "Power outages (are) possible. Wet snow can cling to wires, tree limbs and signs, which can be shaken off and broken by gusty winds."
West winds are expected to reach 10 to 15 mph with gusts up to 30 mph, the weather service said, and temperatures will be in the lower 30s.
Visibility will be reduced to nearly zero when the snowfall is heavy.
A winter storm warning for heavy snow means severe winter weather conditions are expected that make travel dangerous.
Motorists are warned to travel only for emergency situations.
