...SNOW SQUALLS POSSIBLE LATE TONIGHT AND INTO TUESDAY...
A low pressure system and an associated cold front will move
through the region tonight, followed by an upper level disturbance
on Tuesday. This will lead to an increasing chance of snow showers
and some patchy freezing drizzle later tonight with more
widespread snow showers continuing during the day on Tuesday.
Behind the cold front, a much colder airmass will move into the
area on Tuesday with temperatures falling into the 20s through
the day. Northwest winds will also increase to 15 to 25 mph with
gusts of 30 to 40 mph possible. This will lead to occasional snow
squalls through the day with a quick 1 to 2 inches of accumulation
possible. Rapidly changing visibilities will also be possible with
brief near whiteout conditions possible.
If you are planning travel late tonight and through the day on
Tuesday, be prepared for icy roads and rapidly changing driving
conditions.
