More Winter Weather Expected Overnight
You may wake up to a sloppy commute based on the current NOAA radar projections.
As we wade through February, we can generally expect a mixed bag of precipitation – whenever it rains, it sometimes pours and then snows, too, depending on the temperature. What to wear – hip boots? Mukluks? Snowshoes? Galoshes?
Some kind of winter weather is due to fall overnight for much of the region according to NOAA, as a pesky winter storm creeps in on us. Key here is to take it slow if you wake up and find a wintry-mix on the roadways. Here's the rundown, ending on a sunny note:
