.DISCUSSION...A strong upper system will push through the area
today. While the initial push of precipitation occurred last night
through this morning, the second push will likely be more
significant with an additional 5 to 8 more inches of snowfall.
Isolated thunder cannot be ruled out this afternoon. The surface
cold front associated with this feature will shift winds to the
north with the strongest wind speeds arriving early to mid
afternoon, and may continue through the night into tomorrow.
Tomorrow should be drier as the brunt of the precip associated
with this system shifts to the south and east.
