Rain and sleet Thursday, light snow possible overnight in Houston area

Somewhat heavier snow is predicted in a few north Georgia areas. "Basically, as the sun sets (Friday), we're going to start to see some of that rain change over to snow and probably mix in flakes with the rain and possibly change over to all snow shortly after that".

- When exactly the rain might turn to sleet and when the sleet might turn to snow (if it occurs).

Some areas will see light accumulations, causing slick spots, but most roads should remain just wet as temperatures remain above 32 degrees on Friday, according to the FOX 5 Storm Team.

There is an increasing confidence of minor snowfall accumulation across portions of Central Alabama during the day Friday. Temperatures should go above freezing, into the mid to upper 30s, by late morning and through the afternoon, easing the ice issue on roads. Some on the northern edge could see nothing at all, and others on the southern part could see all rain. The air at the surface may not be below freezing, but the air just above it is.

San Marcos officer killed by suspect while serving warrant
The San Marcos Police officer shot and killed in the line of duty has been identified as 58-year-old Kenneth Copeland. It was not immediately known whether the suspect shot himself or was shot by an officer on the scene, Stapp said.

Below freezing air from the north and moisture coming in from the southwest tonight will lead to a good setup to see rain change over into snow after midnight.

A few places, like the northern hilly areas of Sussex County, usually see their first measurable snow - 0.1 inches or more - by December 2.

So, the biggest takeaway is to just take it easy on the roadways Friday morning and give yourself plenty of space between you and the vehicle in front of you and do not slam on the brakes as that leads to more skidding. The city will send an update Friday about that night's events.

Sunday: Partly sunny, high near 32.
