Details:
...Impactful Snow Squalls Possible Later Today...
Snow showers and possible snow squalls will develop in the
deepening cold air across the region this afternoon and early
evening. Bursts of moderate to heavy snow would be accompanied by
wind gusts in excess of 30 mph...and this scenario would result in
greatly reduced visibility along with a quick inch or two
accumulation. The highest risk for the potentially impactful snow
squalls would be from 3 PM to 8 PM...including this evenings `rush
hour`.
Given the recent mild weather...ground surfaces will still be
above freezing for much of today. Sharply falling temperatures
later this afternoon though will encourage any melted snow from
the expected snow showers and possible squalls to quickly freeze
on area roadways. Untreated surfaces will become extremely slippery
and offer little or no traction, creating hazardous travel
conditions possible, especially during the evening commute.
If traveling later today, plan on fast changing weather. Motorists
that encounter snow squalls should remember to reduce their speed
and to keep extra distance between themselves and other vehicles.

A watch is used when the risk of a hazardous weather event has increased significantly, but its occurrence, locations, and/or timing is still uncertain. It is intended to provide advance notice of possible inclement weather.

A warning is used for conditions posing an immediate threat to life or property. Depending on the type of warning, you should take immediate, appropriate action.
