Winter Mix Becomes Snow Today. Dangerous Travel Tonight/Friday Morning

Good Thursday Morning. No huge changes overnight but we are now moving into the timeframe that we will begin nowcasting this storm as it starts to evolve over the area. Currently (As of 5:00am) a Winter Weather Advisory remains in place until Midnight tonight. This is for snow and sleet that will occasionally mix with rain. I think our forecast is right on track with a good 1 - 3 inch accumulation. Areas along and south of Hwy 74 likely will start as rain, mix with sleet and snow, and then eventually change over to snow by this afternoon. As you saw last night we issued our final call and we will not me manipulating that at all. The snow should end between 8 and 10pm tonight for our western counties and between 9pm and midnight for our Eastern Counties.
