Summary

Winter weather travel advisory in effect.

What:
Snow, heavy at times, additional snow accumulations of 2 to 4 cm.
Risk of freezing drizzle.

When:
Now through this evening.

Discussion:
Periods of snow and the risk of freezing drizzle will continue afternoon. A sharp cold front will push through the region late this afternoon causing temperatures to abruptly drop below freezing. The combination of accumulating snow, freezing drizzle, and falling temperatures will make for hazardous road conditions, particularly for untreated surfaces.

###

Motorists should expect hazardous winter driving conditions and adjust travel plans accordingly.
