If you thought the weekend's storm was bad; hold on to your hats. Mark Thibodeau with the Weather Channel says the snow that's falling now is going to get heavier. "Winter storm warning continues until 10 o'clock on Wednesday [evening]. And I really think the worst of the weather is going to be during the; starting up in the wee morning hours and then lasting through the daytime on Wednesday; and then improving into tomorrow night. But then, snow accumulations could be heavy, anywhere from 6 to 12 inches of snow, the way it looks out of this one. The heaviest amounts of course are going to be in the typical spots." Thibodeau says the temperatures won't warm up much either, and that means roads will be icy. "The winds are kind of going to be gusty too with this one. They’re kind of wound up on the weather map, with the pressure gradients, the winds are going to be gusting maybe 25-30 mph; that could create some blowing and drifting. And the roads are going to get hazardous with this one, as temperatures go below freezing, I do think that we could be talking about some slick roadways. Now we are going to make the upper 30's for the high Wednesday, so we'll see some melting. as we plummet down to 20 degrees Wednesday night, again, as we always say, and liquid spots are up for a refreeze." Thibodeau says the winter storm warning is in effect until 10 o'clock Wednesday night. The good news is: we should dry out by Saturday and have a pretty warm weekend.
