Snow is falling early on this Friday morning and temperatures are near the freezing mark across the area, winds are from the north averaging around 10 mph.
Yesterday morning I said that we would only have a slight chance of snow with higher chances to our east but the front stayed just offshore and a low pressure has formed closer to our area causing the snow in much of the area. Snow should continue this morning and give us around 2-3 inches of the white stuff. Temperatures are expected to be at or above freezing so most of the accumulation should just be on colder surfaces, still there may be some slippery roads mainly on secondary roads so be careful heading out this morning. Sunshine will return this afternoon with highs near 40 which will help melt the snow.
The weekend will be dry with temperatures slightly above normal.
A storm is expected to develop off our coast on Monday night which will likely give us snow into Tuesday, at this time it is difficult to pinpoint accumulations but my best guess it will be a mainly light to moderate event.
Dry and cold but not frigid weather is expected the rest of next week.
