• Snowfall intensity still dropping
• Gusty winds produce blowing and drifting snow
• Not much accumulation expected Tuesday afternoon
• No significant weather issues heading toward Thanksgiving

The air is drying out and the snowfall intensity is dropping.  Not much additional snowfall is expected through the afternoon.

One problem you might encounter is areas of blowing snow, so you may go from clear roads to snow covered roads in a short distance.  This is especially true in exposed areas.

A lot of folks wondering about the weather for the big travel day Wednesday.  Right now it looks quiet and cloudy, with nothing more than some drizzle.  Roads should be wet and easily navigable for you.

We do have a new area of low pressure moving in from the Great Lakes Wednesday night and Thursday for Thanksgiving, but for now we should be warm enough for precipitation to be mainly rain during that timeframe. Some higher elevation wet snow showers are possible Thanksgiving, but little to accumulation is expected. Temperatures will be in the upper 30s to around 40 through the end of the week.
