Snow continues to taper off, winds stay gusty

Snow will taper off through the morning and into the afternoon. While additional accumulations will be minor, a Winter Storm Warning remains in effect until 6 p.m. this evening.

Gusty winds in excess of 35 mph will be the main concern today. Strong gusts may lead to blowing snow and drifting of snow we already have on the ground, especially since it was on the powdery side. This means reduced visibility could be a concern through Saturday evening.

A very aggressive dry slot significantly cut into Friday night's snow totals, especially during the first burst of snow Friday evening. Sometimes weather models do not accurately capture the formation of a dry slot, which was the case with this storm. It serves as a reminder that our science isn't perfect, but we have to use the tools we have to do the best we can.

In the wake of this system, another round of cold air will move in to end the weekend and start the work week, with highs in the single digits above zero and lows below zero. Take note that we will likely hit our high temperature early in the day and temperatures will decrease from there.

The first half of the week will be quiet aside from the cold temperatures. Slight snow chances return toward the end of the week.
