Bands of moderate to briefly heavy snow will continue overnight through the time of the Thursday morning commute. * IMPACTS…Moderate to heavy snow will quickly accumulate along area roadways making for slick and hazardous travel. Visibility will be reduced at time down to a quarter mile or less within heavier snow bands. * UNCERTAINTY…Confidence is lower than normal in the forecasted snow amounts. Snowfall amounts may end up higher or lower than the current forecast reflects. Given such a small scale event, snowfall gradients are expected to be tight with considerable change possible on the order of 5 to 10 miles. However the Winter Weather Advisory was expanded to cover thoroughfares that would be impacted by snow during the Thursday morning commute. A Winter Weather Advisory for snow means that periods of snow will cause primarily travel difficulties. Be prepared for snow covered roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving.
