The National Weather Service in New Orleans has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the region with the forecast including snow.

The advisory runs from 9:00pm tonight through noon tomorrow.

"A mix of rain and sleet could begin late this evening before becoming snow Friday morning," the Weather Service advises. "This could impact some areas during the morning commute Friday. Most areas will only see flurries with little if any accumulation."

Government forecaster, however, warn that a few spots near the state line between Louisiana and Mississippi could see accumulation on grassy surfaces, rooftops, and elevated surfaces including roadways.

"Visibility will be reduced Friday morning in areas where snow falls."
