Snow continues to fall across the Tri-States this evening. Radar is starting to pick up on a few breaks in the snow for the western counties, however snow may still be occurring below the radar beam. Several areas have reported at least 8 inches. A lot of reports have areas at or above a foot of snow. The heavy snow totals will increase the farther south you go. Law enforcement are asking that you stay home and off the roads!
