Slippery spots through the morning
Folks away from the shorelines should expect some slick spots Monday morning, so do take caution and allow for extra time to reach your destination. Snow changes to rain over southern and eastern areas, with just the mountains and north staying all snow. Precipitation remains on track to end Monday afternoon from west to east, ending for most areas by Monday evening.
No changes in thinking on snowfall amounts that was posted here last night.
Warm air works into the region thanks to the warm front. This will help clean up areas that were iced in from the previous storm. This graphic in celsius to better distinguish above and below freezing temperatures.
WATCH FOR FALLING ICE and expect everything to freeze back up Monday night as temps fall into the teens and 20s, with low 30s possible for the York County shorelines.
A quick hitter on Tuesday
The frontal boundary associated with the Monday storm stalls offshore, and a weak area of low pressure travels along it. This could bring some light snow showers over interior areas and a light mix or rain along the coastal plain, Any snow accumulation appears to be an inch or less, Precipitation appears to start after the morning commute Monday and end by mid-afternoon over western areas. Eastern areas may have some light impacts on the evening commute, but appears to end by 7-8 PM. An approaching cold front kicks off some snow showers in the mountains Tuesday night into Wednesday. The ski hills may pick up an inch or two out of that.
Our next widespread storm is on track to impact the region Thursday. A rough idea of 3-6" of snow is possible for most locations, and could have effects on both the morning and evening commutes.
Stay tuned for more on that.
