we will continue down to 28 degrees and eventually up to 36. at least we are staying somewhat mild. the problem is, we have that makes that will transition over to snow in the afternoon. around one inch or so, i think two inches maximum in locations to the north. just enough to make them a little bit more difficult to travel. system starts to stir up off to the west as we head into the next 24 hours. you can see here, you start to see snow make its way and. as i said before, this will not necessarily be an all-day thing. it will still be enough to make those roads a bit slick at times.
