This is going to accumulate and totals are going to range from a dusting to 5 inches, depending on where you live.

The communities that are going to see the most snow will be from the northern county line of Whitley and Allen counties to the Michigan border.

These spots will see snow totals ranging from 3 to 5 inches, with isolated spots higher than 5 inches possible.

Areas south of U.S. 224 are going see a dusting to an inch of snow.

But in Wabash, areas south of U.S. 24 are going to fall in that range.

Spots between U.S. 224 and the northern county lines of Whitley and Allen counties are going to see anywhere from 1 to 3 inches.

Between 1 - 7 a.m. Saturday we're going to see some sleet and freezing rain.

Ice accumulations will be in the hundredths of an ice, but that's enough to make everything slippery.

By daybreak Saturday, the wintry mixed will have changed over to all rain, which is going to melt the heavy snow from the night.

If you must travel Friday night or early Saturday morning, make sure to take your time.
