Advisory

Winter Weather Advisory until 09:00AM Tuesday

A strong cold front will combine with a weather disturbance to bring wintry precipitation to the region tonight into Tuesday morning. There is increasing confidence that accumulating snowfall will occur as temperatures fall rapidly behind the cold front. With temperatures falling below freezing, icing of roads, and especially bridges and overpasses, will be a concern throughout the morning hours. In addition, strong wind will combine with the low temperatures to make for very low wind chill readings. Stay tuned for updates on this developing winter weather situation.
