Periods of Heavy Snow This Evening
Extensive Blowing and Drifting Snow
Periods of heavy snow will continue through the evening with an additional 4 to 8 inches of accumulation. Strong, gusty winds, falling snow and extensive blowing and drifting snow will combine to create whiteout conditions at times. Travel will be very difficult and very slow.
Widespread snow will taper to scattered snow showers heading towards midnight and beyond. However, travel will remain slick and slow hours after the widespread snow ends. Plan for extra time even for the Thursday morning commute.
Remaining blustery and quite cold Thursday with limited sun, and few patchy light snow showers and temperatures peaking in the teens.
Milder air returns for Friday and Saturday.
