Alert: Snow Showers or Flurries Likely

By Jason Samenow

Dusting to an inch possible by midnight

The combination of moisture pluming up from the south and an approaching Arctic cold front is likely to produce some snow in the metro area through midnight-- starting after 4pm. Not a lot of accumulation is likely, but roads could become slick this evening when possible bands of snow move through and temperatures drop through the 30s. The probability of snow is about 60%--some areas may see only flurries if that. The steadiest precipitation will likely be southeast of the metro area where accumulating snow is more likely.

See this morning's post for the cold forecast for the rest of the weekend and early next week.
