The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for Friday night, with snow showers in the lower elevations and up three inches of snow expected in the higher elevations.

Temperatures are expected to be unseasonably cold as well, dropping into the mid to upper 20s to 30s late Friday and early Saturday.
