Many roads are slushy due to the snow and we expect moisture to refreeze after sunset, which will keep travel slick in some areas until tomorrow morning when roadways can thaw due to sunshine.

Along with the snow, temperatures are remaining in the upper 20s to 30 degrees with northerly winds gusting over 30 mph producing wind chills in the teens. As skies clear tonight, temperatures will plunge to near 15 and wind chills may be in the single digits tomorrow morning.

Snow will end late in the day and winds will diminish by tonight.
