3-6 Inches of Snow Possible, Winter Storm Warning Issued
We might be getting less snow than we thought we would this time yesterday, but you still might need a shovel to remove what falls tonight and into St. Patrick’s Day.
A winter storm warning has replaced the watch issued by the National Weather Service. They’re calling for three to six inches of snow to fall from about 5 p.m. tonight through 2 p.m. Monday. The Monday morning rush hour could be messy, so we can expect some delays tomorrow.
