Hazardous winter conditions are expected.

The snow could become mixed with freezing rain or ice pellets as temperatures approach the freezing mark Saturday morning. Strong northeast winds will produce heavy blowing snow throughout the day Saturday causing reduced visibilities. Snowfall amounts of 20 to 35 cm are expected. Gradual improvement is expected Saturday night.
