Ice night, and snow

“Rain and sleet likely before midnight, then freezing rain and sleet likely between midnight and 2am, then snow likely after 2am. Cloudy, with a low around 24. North wind around 15 mph, with gusts as high as 25 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%. Little or no ice accumulation expected. Total nighttime snow and sleet accumulation of less than a half inch possible.”
