WEATHER ALERT: An early season snow-producing storm system has arrived in the Tri-States Thursday evening with accumulating snowfall.
Snowfall totals of 1-2 inches and maybe even a bit more in some localized areas are expected in the Tri-States by the time the system winds down by daybreak Friday morning.
Cloudy skies and low temperatures in the upper 20s to near 30 degrees are in the forecast otherwise.
Some slick spots will be possible on area roads especially on bridges and overpasses later tonight.
Plan on giving yourself extra time for your commute on Friday morning.
On Friday, another quick-moving wave of energy will track over the Tri-States with snow showers. Some additional light snowfall accumulation will be possible with temperatures in the unseasonably cold 30s for highs.
Any precipitation should wind down by Friday evening at sunset.
Very cold air will rush into the region on gusty northwest winds with chilly lows in the teens expected in many locations by Saturday morning and even single digit above zero wind chill values on tap at that time.
