By midday, the icy mixture will change to rain for most areas. The rain will continue through the early evening, making for a slushy and slick evening commute too. Temperatures will likely be around or just above freezing during the precipitation.

Temperatures then rise into the 40s for the weekend. The warmer air means plain rain showers are most likely for Saturday afternoon and evening into Sunday.
