Slick Roads Overnight As Steadier Snow Tapers Off - Still Some Occasional Light Snow

A weak area of low pressure that has been producing mainly light snow this evening will push farther away from the region as we work into the late night hours. The steady,  light snow will be tapering to more scattered areas of light snow, with only minimal additional accumulations for the overnight hours. Still, expect slow and slick travel conditions to be around for the duration of the night.  Most areas have seen from 1-3" of snowfall. Lingering flurries will be around into Monday morning.
