More winter weather expected to hit area

By Katie Demeria

After Sunday's ice storm, the area is not going to have much relief from snowy weather. The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for snow from 3 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday.

Up to 5 inches of snow are possible, most of which will fall between daybreak and midmorning Tuesday.

"Hazardous travel conditions are probable due to accumulating snow," the NWS reported. "The snow will likely impact the morning rush Tuesday with the potential for accumulation rates of 1-2 inches per hour for a two-to-four hour period from daybreak to mid-to-late morning."

Jason Elliott, NWS meteorologist, said that while the storm could start with some sleet, it will largely be a snow event.

This snow is likely to stick around for a few days.

"It's going to be pretty chilly, actually, for quite a while," he said. "Highs tomorrow may not get much above freezing at all, and they don't look a whole lot better for Wednesday or Thursday. There could be some sunshine mixed in, but it's going to be a slow melting process."

Any precipitation left on the road tonight, Elliott said, will freeze, and with the snow piling on top, the road conditions could deteriorate quickly.
