Snow, sleet and freezing rain are expected there through 9 a.m. Wednesday, with accumulations of a half inch to 2 inches in some locations.

“The heaviest band of frozen precipitation may shift north or south of its current forecast position,” the weather advisory reads. “Depending on subtle changes in temperatures at just above the surface, a northward shift would bring higher accumulations into the advisory area.”
