...Wet Snow Accumulations Possible Across Higher Elevations...

Much colder air rushing in behind a passing cold front early this
morning will cause residual showers to change over to wet snow at
times especially across higher elevations. Although surfaces
remain warm, a quick burst of heavier snowfall could result in
light accumulations of an inch or two mainly on grassy surfaces.
Locations above 3000 feet may also see a coating on roadways,
especially bridges and overpasses. Motorists should be alert for
slippery conditions if traveling early this morning. Conditions
should improve after sunrise once temperatures start to rise above
freezing across the higher elevations.
