This Evening: Light to moderate snow, sometimes heavy, has been falling for much of the afternoon with a touch of a wintry mix, mainly along and south of I-80. Roads have quickly become covered and travel will be hazardous for much of the afternoon. Visibility will also be less than a mile at times in the heaviest snow. We will see the snow ending in the west around 5 or 6 PM and in the east about 8 to 10 PM. Roads will likely stay slick after the snow ends. Overall, 2-5” is still expected across the area.
With temperatures in the mid to upper 20s, this will be a bit of a wetter snow compared to systems past and we shouldn't see many issues when it comes to blowing snow with winds of about 10 to 20 mph. The biggest problem will be slushy/snow covered roads. Be careful shoveling too as the snow will have a little more weight.
Tonight: Once the snow ends, clouds will slowly try to decrease, leaving us with mostly to partly cloudy skies. Lows will dip to the mid and upper teens north/west and low to mid 20s east and south.
Monday: The fresh snow won't keep temperatures down for the start of the week as the winds strengthen from the west southwest at 10 to 20 mph. The breezy winds will push highs to the mid 30s with partly sunny skies.
Skies will become mostly clear for Monday night with lows falling to the low and mid 20s. A stronger west wind at 10 to 15 mph will keep temperatures from bottoming out further.
Tuesday: We should get even warmer for Tuesday with partly cloudy skies and a lighter south southwest wind. Highs will be in the upper 30s and low 40s in the south!
Rest of the Week: A cold front will approach and will bring snow chances for Tuesday night and partly cloudy skies for Wednesday with highs back to the low and mid 30s. Winds will become stronger from the north after the front passes and will lead to lows in the teens and upper single digits for the rest of the week with highs in the 20s to mid 30s. We will likely have some sun for Thursday and Friday with a few flakes possible late on Friday.
Next Weekend: There could be more chances for rain/snow over the weekend with highs dipping from the mid 30s Saturday with partly cloudy skies to the low 30s on Sunday with the chance for a mix.
Next Week: Snow may linger into Monday with highs in the mid 20s. This should be fallowed by warmer temperatures for Tuesday and Wednesday.
