Southwest areas are fair game for snow & sleet after 5p.  The entire viewing area from Covington to Rochester & Morocco to Atlanta will be covered by snow, sleet & some freezing rain by 12a.

1-3″ of snow & sleet with 0.10″ of glaze ice still looks good area-wide with the highest totals of that spectrum in our northern & northwestern areas.

Bits of elevated CAPE or instability due to impressive lift & forcing & +55 mph low-level jet may create a rumble of thunder or two with the wintry precipitation.  During greatest lift, snow, sleet & then freezing rain may occasionally come down heavily with reduced visibility.

It should largely taper to a bit of drizzle & patchy misty rain by Friday morning as temperatures rise.

Winds may gust to 38 mph at times tonight, slamming that sleet against windows & making those trees & branches noisy & crackling with the 1/10″ of ice accumulation.

The wind will blow that snow & sleet around quite a bit until the freezing rain comes in & puts a crust atop the snow & sleet, preventing it from blowing around.
