Already snow showers are coming down west of Route 11, with Rain mixed with snow expected to start up for Central and Southeastern locations approaching the 9:00am hour.

Rain mixed with snow lasts throughout the first-half of the day today, for areas east of Route 11. We’re anticipating the countywide changeover to all-snow by 3:00/4:00pm this afternoon. At that point, the snowfall intensity is looking to pick-up with heavier snow lasting throughout much of the later evening and overnight.

We are expecting widespread hazardous travel, with significantly reduced visibilities, and slick, snow-covered roadways. If headed out and about, take it slow and make sure to leave extra space in-between you and the vehicle in front of you.
