Calmer conditions Saturday night will mean a quicker drop in temperatures...with some locations reaching the freezing mark late Saturday evening.

In addition...scattered snow showers are forecast early Saturday morning east of the I-65 corridor. A brief accumulation is possible in areas where the snow rate is highest.
