Groundhog Day Storm Update (As of 7 pm Tuesday)
We are starting to see a lull in precipitation. Scattered snow continues to move north out of the area tonight as light rain and drizzle takes over. We are not expecting any additional snow accumulation for tonight, so the winter weather advisories will be dropped at 10 pm.
Snowfall amounts between 2 and 5 inches were recorded across the advisory areas. Travel in those areas will continue to be slick and hazardous.
Lastly, wind remains strong area wide, with gusts well over 30 mph. That will quickly create reduced visibilities for areas dealing with wet weather. The winds after midnight will drop between 5 and 15 mph.
The concern for late tonight with be patchy areas of drizzle. Most of the area will stay above freezing; however, our western counties could be impacted by patchy freezing drizzle. Use caution over bridges and overpasses. On the back side of this storm, scattered snow showers are still possible tomorrow with additional accumulations of less than an inch.
