The brief hit of snow that started late last night has come to an end for most of the forecast area. Some light snow showers are still falling in eastern and southeastern counties and will continue to add to the already coated ground. Snow amounts have been reported in the 2” to 2.5” range in a couple of counties included in the WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY.

Snow showers east and south will continue to wind down as the sun rises. The WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY for the counties included will expire at 7:00 am. Snow will still coat the ground, especially grassy and elevated surfaces as temperatures remain well below freezing. We will expect a slight warm up a few degrees above freezing allowing some snow to melt. Abundant sunshine is also going to make today look a lot better. Still, bundle up if heading out as the winter bite remains. As we end meteorological winter (today) and enter meteorological spring (tomorrow) temperatures will follow suit. We will warm up and impressive 20 degrees thanks to a wind shift and some sunshine tomorrow. Temperatures will start bitter, but we should reach near 60 degrees for the afternoon high. Clouds are on the increase late Sunday ahead of the next rain-maker slated for early next week. Rain is likely Monday and Tuesday.
