After what's so-far been a mostly mild winter, this storm could bring the most significant snowfall of the season. The storm is expected to begin with a mixture of rain and snow Thursday evening before the precipitation turns to all snow.
The weather service warned motorists to expect snow-covered and slippery roads Thursday night and Friday.
The weather service now says 3 to 5 inches of snow could fall Thursday night, followed by another 1 to 2 inches on Friday. The chance of precipitation Thursday night is 100 percent, forecasters said.
An earlier forecast had predicted a slightly smaller snowfall.
A winter storm watch means there is a potential for significant snow, sleet or ice accumulation that may affect travel.
