While it will be breezy, luckily, we aren’t dealing with strong enough winds to create a drifting snow hazard. Lows Sunday morning will reach the mid 20s. Wind chills will be in the lower teens at times. We’ll see breezy conditions through Sunday, with clouds lingering and highs near freezing, and wind chills in the 20s.
Hazardous road conditions are possible into Sunday morning. If you can stay off the roads try to as much as possible.

Road conditions won’t really improve until the morning hours as crews are still getting a handle on them, especially the lesser travelled roads. Road conditions should greatly improve by Sunday; however, even the morning commute could be sketchy. If you can STAY HOME and off the roads DO SO. There have been numerous reports of accidents all across the area.
Closings and delays are updated on WEEK.com and at the bottom of your TV screen on WEEK.
