Snow Tuesday

Our next complex storm system will bring snow the area on Tuesday.  It’s looking like 3 to 6″ of snow will accumulate for most of the area before we introduce a change to sleet and freezing rain for Tuesday evening and Tuesday night.  It still looks like some freezing rain and freezing drizzle will linger into early Wednesday morning making for some slippery travel early that day. The trend will be for improvement that day with some afternoon sun returning. Late day highs should rebound into the 40s.  Colder air will move back into the picture on Thursday and Friday.
