Meteorologist Tony Hurt said the greatest chance for snow will be between the early morning hours Friday through midday to about noon.

“You have that window where you can possibly expect some snow,” he said.

If any snow accumulates Friday, it could refreeze as ice on highways Saturday, he said, so motorists are urged to take precautions.

Hurt said that if it snows in Lincoln County it could be enough for a snowman.

“I like to think optimistically,” he said.
