Snow Continues, Tricky Travel In Some Spots
So far snow totals over the area have ranged from 3-5" for most, with a few spots seeing 6", 7" even. Light snow will continue on/off throughout the day, before wrapping up by the evening hours. Look for an additional 1-2" of snow by the evening. Roads are a little tricky, so if you have to do any traveling, be sure to go a little slower than normal. Skies clear out overnight, and with a new snow pack, temperatures will go sub-zero once again by Monday morning.
We will be tracking our next chance for snow Tuesday into Wednesday morning, this time around minor accumulations are expected. By Wednesday though, as we are on the back of the storm, we are going to watch temperatures fall all-day, getting once again into the sub-zero category by Thursday morning.
A slow, & gradual warm-up to the lower 30s is expected by Saturday, however another system will be nearing the area, giving us another chance to see a little light snow for next weekend.
