Blowing and Drifting Snow This Morning

A major winter storm will continue to move away from the region today. This has brought an end to the accumulating snow with skies clearing. Still, in it's wake northwest winds will remain strong at 20 to 30 mph and gusty this morning. These winds will combine with the freshly fallen snow to produce considerable blowing and drifting snow through mid morning, especially in open or rural areas, making for hazardous travel conditions. The winds are expected to gradually diminish to around 10 mph or less by mid to late afternoon.
