The National Weather Service said snow showers are expected around rush hour.
No need to scurry off to the grocery store to buy the obligatory milk, bread and toilet paper: National Weather Service Meteorologist Lee Hendricks said today’s snowfall shouldn’t be a big deal. With light snow this morning and a chance of about an inch this afternoon, driver’s should nonetheless exercise caution on the roads during rush hour—which is when the flakes should really begin flying. Also on tap today? Wind gusts of up to 35 mph, he said. Another inch of the white stuff is expected overnight, when temperature is expected to hover in the teens. But tomorrow? It might get a little ugly. Snow is expected to turn to sleet come sunset Friday, and Hendricks said that will likely spur the National Weather Service to issue a warning. “…

An inch or two could accumulate on grassy areas during Wednesday's evening rush hour.
That biting rain falling this morning will likely turn into snow later this afternoon, and the amount of accumulation likely will depend on which side of the city you’re located. Dan Krzywiecki, the chief meteorologist for Air Science Consultants in Bridgeville, said the rain will gradually change over into a snowy mix before turning to all snow around rush hour. However, with warmer than usual temperatures this week, he expected the only accumulation to be in grassy areas. “The ground temps are well above freezing, but as the air temperatures cool and approach freezing–that will be some time later this evening–there could be some slippery spots,” he said. “Plus any water on the roads after the event could turn to ice.” He expected …
