    Very cold overnight and a few evening snow showers are possible. Temperatures will drop quickly below freezing so ice will form on untreated surfaces where roads are wet from earlier rain. 

    A band of sleet and snow will briefly pass through just before dawn with lows of -1C (30F).


    Early sleet and snow on Friday will soon clear, leaving a dry day with a good deal of sunshine.
