"Look for some freezing drizzle this morning," said National Weather Service meteorologist John Hoppes.

"There should be more precipitation tonight starting with some freezing rain and sleet that will be changing over to snow probably by Saturday morning.

"There could be a break Saturday and it will get going again Saturday night into Sunday," Hoppes said.

"Sunday the winds will pick up. It shouldn't be so bad in your forested areas, but open areas will have some visibility problems."

Hoppes said those conditions could persist into Monday.

Hubbard County and surrounding regions are in a winter storm watch.
