Snowfall, with total amounts of 15 to 20 cm is expected.

Snow, heavy at times, will continue today and taper off tonight. Widespread total snowfall amounts of 15 to 20 cm are expected across the region from this snowstorm.

Driving conditions will quickly deteriorate after the snow arrives overnight. Both the morning and afternoon commutes will be affected. Motorists should adjust travel plans accordingly.

Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow. There may be a significant impact on rush hour traffic in urban areas.
