You can see the wet snow sticking to some of the trees around the area. Be careful on the roads as this slush turns to ice this afternoon! Thank you Justin New for sending this picture in! There are no days off for meteorologists or bloggers. :)
Here is the latest as of 8:50 a.m.
Today: We will see another band of rain and snow changing to all snow by 10 a.m. with a quick half-inch to one inch of snow expected by late day with falling temperatures into the upper 20s by early evening. Wind chills will plummet into the teens with a west southwest to west wind at 15 to 33 mph.
Slick roads will be developing this afternoon and tonight with the much colder temperatures and while we will not have a big snow we will still have to be weary of icy roads as temperatures do a free-fall. Even though we will have a wet snow today, some blowing and drifting snow is still likely as our light snow covering dries out quickly in the arctic air. Winter weather advisories continue across the northern tier of our area where I expect accumulations in the one to two inch range and a little more in the way of reduced visibilities and blowing and drifting snow.
Now it is off to the Prangley family weekend......it will be crazy with tons of things going on but that is the way I like it! If anything changes I will check back and of course I will be back to blog with you later on.
