Widely scattered snow showers will develop this afternoon into the
early evening hours today. Snow showers will be capable of
producing bursts of heavy snow and gusty winds between 20 to 30
mph. Organized showers may produce snow squalls with visibility
rapidly dropping down to one-half mile or less. Intense snow
showers may also drop road surface temperatures down to below
freezing with icy conditions rapidly developing, especially around
the time of the evening commute. Remain alert to the latest
weather and travel conditions and keep an eye out for snow squall
warnings. If caught in a snow squall, remember to reduce speeds
and to turn on headlights and hazard lights.
