A snowy Tuesday is on tap, with messy commutes.

 

HERE IS THE LATEST WEATHER SYNOPSIS... A cold front will cross overnight, bringing with it, snow and falling temperatures. This could result very slippery conditions on roads and overpasses by dawn Tuesday. As a result, a winter weather advisory remains in effect for much of the area. Light snow will gradually taper off in the middle Ohio Valley Wednesday afternoon, after one to four inches accumulation, and in the mountains Wednesday night, after two to five inches total accumulation. Although it will be drier, bitter cold air will return once again. A high pressure system will then provide dry weather for the end of the work week, with temperatures moderating into the weekend. On the horizon, a large low pressure system gives us the next shot of significant precipitation toward the end of the weekend.
