Those who need to travel should exercise caution. Roadways will be slippery Friday through Sunday. Visibility may be reduced at times. Air travelers should also prepare for delays from the storm.

Though the precipitation will stop come Sunday, temperatures will plummet into the teens during the day.

Monday will follow suit before the return of snow and temperatures in the upper 20s on Tuesday.
