National Weather Service gives the area a 90 percent chance of rain, snow and sleet through today and tonight. NWS said accumulation of snow and sleet today could be up to an inch, with 1-3 inches possible tonight.

The forecast calls for snow possibly mixed with sleet before noon today, then rain possibly mixed with sleet, according to NWS. For tonight, the forecast calls for rain possibly mixed with sleet before midnight, then snow, freezing rain and sleet.
