Heads UP! Cold, slippery snow then rain – with updated snow totals

Based on the National Weather Service forecasts…..including snowfall values collected through 7pm.
The dry, fine snow is very slippery, especially since it’s so cold out.

Watch out for periods of snow, heavy at times after dark, with increasing winds.
Snow will change to freezing rain and rain tonight from the coast and many inland location, but not before a substantial snow fall of 3 to 7 inches coast and 6 to 10 inland.
Warm air comes in aloft and, overnight, mixes down the the surface, so we get rain freezing in the colder surface layer until enough warm air comes in.

It’s all over early Sunday. The heavy rain/snow will be over by daybreak and all drizzle/snow flurries over by 10am.

Much colder Monday after the storm pulls cold air down as it matures over eastern Canada.

See the previous report for links to maps with forecasts of snowfall amounts.
