ERIE, PA – A storm system will bring soaking rain through the evening then a change to wet snow by Friday Morning. The transition to wet snow will take place near or just after midnight near Erie. The snow could fall steadily for the morning commute. It will be a heavy wet slushy type of snow which will create slick roads. Areas of lake enhanced snow continue near I-90 for the Friday evening commute, too.

Here is a look at expected snow totals through sunset Friday.
