Snow showers moving across the region this morning may be briefly moderate to heavy, dropping visibilities to one half mile or less, and producing a quick half inch of snow accumulation. Also, water remaining on roads from the rain yesterday has frozen in many areas. This combination is creating very slick driving conditions.

If you are driving this morning, use extreme caution. Slow down and increase the distance between your car and the ones ahead of you. Allow extra time to reach your destination.
