FRIDAY UPDATE - Two day winter storm brings snow and ice

By Staff | Feb 06, 2020

Freezing rain accumulated through Thursday night and Friday morning, ranging from a trace along the immediate coast to up to 1/3" just a few miles inland with isolated locations up to 1/2" of ice possible. Additional snow late Friday will range from a trace to 2" and make icy surfaces extra slippery.

We'll see clearing into the weekend as high pressure builds in ushering in a shot of bitter cold with highs down into the 20s and overnight low hitting the single digits Saturday night. Temperatures will rebound slightly on Sunday with a mix of sun and clouds followed by another chance of rain and snow mix on Monday.
