Temperatures with this storm system are not as cold as the last one. So, while we don’t anticipate frozen highways there will still be some slick spots.

Accumulation looks to be around an inch in many parts of the metro area. A few areas south and east of downtown could see 2-3".

The snow will quickly end and sunshine will return during the afternoon. It will be much cooler and there will be a strong north wind.
