"The snow may be heavy at times," the NWS report filed at 4:23 a.m. said. "Temperatures above freezing will assist with some melting on treated surfaces. Nevertheless slushy accumulations are likely throughout this area throughout the day and will become more widespread at night."

The NWS warns drivers to anticipate "difficult traveling conditions, especially on less traveled roadways, bridges and overpasses." Winds are also likely to be sustained between 15 and 25 mph with gusts up to 45 mph.
