A brief period of snow overspreads the northern Worcester Hills

...PATCHY DENSE FOG POSSIBLE TONIGHT INTO THE EARLY MORNING HOURS
TUESDAY...

Patchy dense fog will be possible across portions of north and
central Georgia including the Atlanta metro area tonight into the
morning hours on Tuesday. Visibilities could be reduced to a
quarter mile or less at times in this region. Morning rain showers
will begin to erode any remaining patchy dense fog but will
likely cause lowered visibility within heavier downpours.

If you encounter reduced visibilities while driving, slow down,
increase the distance between you and other vehicles in front of
you, and use your low-beam headlights. Any remaining patchy fog
is expected to clear during the late morning hours.

Winds over the western basin of Lake Erie were out of the east at
15 to 25 mph. This has allowed for water levels to rise to almost

to continue through the next couple of hours and water levels will
fluctuate between 70 and 75 inches above low water datum,
resulting in a period of minor lakeshore flooding.

morning as winds shift to out of the south at 10 to 20 mph.

...SNOW RETURNING TO ANCHORAGE AND THE MATANUSKA VALLEY TUESDAY...

Winter weather is going to return to the Anchorage Bowl as early
as Tuesday morning as mixed rain and snow turns to all snow, which
will likely impact the morning commute. This storm is very
complex and the details still remain uncertain. But snow is
expected to continue on and off through the afternoon and then
increase again in the evening and overnight. Snow totals overall
for this storm are currently expected to be in the 5-8" range,
although higher amounts are possible. Snow will develop later and
there will be less accumulation across the Matanuska Valley, with
4-6" expected by late Tuesday night. Commuters from the Valley
should be cautious as snow may rapidly develop for the morning
commute heading into Anchorage. This is a rapidly changing storm
so stay tuned for more information.
