Discussion

A cold, dry air mass is in place across the region as we begin a new work week, but there is plenty of moisture headed in this direction from low pressure moving towards the Ohio Valley. A mix of snow, ice and/or rain is likely to push into the area during the mid or late afternoon hours and it’ll continue at varying rates into Tuesday morning. Accumulations of anywhere from a coating to a couple of inches are possible during this event and, given the cold ground conditions, there can be some slick spots on untreated surfaces from late today through tomorrow morning. There is the threat of another storm later in the week as low pressure will head towards the Carolina coastline. Its northward extent is still in question, but some accumulating snow is possible here by Thursday.
