Rain should begin to push into the area after 9pm from the south and west, overspreading the metro between 10pm and Midnight. That rain begins to change over to snow between Midnight and 2am. Heavy bursts of snow are likely as this band develops, with the potential for some thundersnow in spots. This will lead to snow overcoming warm ground temperatures and initially melting allowing for at least some snow accumulation. Slushy to snow covered roads are possible from 4 to 8am Sunday morning.
