Snow & Ice Return to Area for Midweek Event

Over the weekend the region got a break from the brutal cold and snow with temperatures reaching the fifties.

Reality is back today and has special plans that will arrive just in time for the Tuesday evening commute.

A winter storm warning goes in effect at 4 p.m. and isn't scheduled to expire until Wednesday at 10 a.m. The National Weather Service expects snow accumulation of one to three inches along with a quarter inch of ice. The NWS notes, "A slight change in storm track could produce significant differences in these accumulations over a small area."

Snow will start to develop early Tuesday evening and continue through the night. That snow will change to freezing rain at times before finally tapering off Wednesday morning.

Travel conditions could be hazardous.

The rest of the 7-day forecast is also chilly.
