Right now, these counties under the Winter Weather Advisory have the best chance to see both some light accumulation and slippery road conditions, however the entire region will see some of this wintry mix. 

The precipitation will start late Friday morning as light snow, then begin to mix over to sleet. Some light freezing drizzle is expected overnight Friday with a glaze of ice possible.

Overall, this is a minor winter weather event, but because of the timing and the possibility of some ice, it could cause some travel issues on Friday anywhere across the region.
