Winter Weather Advisory; Updated Snowstorm Timeline

Forecast snowfall accumulations have increased for Friday as a quick-moving system impacts the region. Areas of snow will move into the region by mid-morning, with the heaviest snow expected from roughly 9am-2pm before diminishing through the remainder of the afternoon and possibly into the early evening hours. Snow accumulations of 3-6″ are expected, with locally higher amounts possible. Snowfall rates could potentially approach 1″ per hour, which would cause roadways to quickly become snow-packed. If you have to travel tomorrow, use extreme caution, take it slow, and allow extra time to get to your destination!
