Scattered lake effect snow showers and flurries will continue this evening and into the night. Snowfall won’t add up to too much, with accumulations of a dusting of 1″ possible. A few pockets of around 2″ are possible, especially into the northern snow belt. With cold temps, snow won’t have any trouble sticking and dustings on roads are possible. Slick spots from both snow and patchy black ice will be possible through morning. Temperatures drop to the lower teens overnight. Brisk winds continue and will drive wind chills down to around 0° overnight through daybreak.
A few snow showers or flurries remain in the forecast Tuesday morning. Everyone has a chance to encounter a passing flurry or snow shower but most of what we see will be in the northern snow belt.
