Snow Through Tuesday...Milder/Drier Long-Term
Updated by KSFY-TV Meteorologist Phil Schreck on Monday, November 30 at 10:05 PM
The snow will continue to come down overnight and Tuesday. However, it won't be quite as heavy as it was much of the day on Monday. We'll end up with 10-12" over many locations. The wind will pick up a bit on Tuesday so we will be dealing with some areas of blowing and drifting snow. Because of that, the WINTER STORM WARNING will continue through Tuesday.
The rest of the 7-day forecast is looking dry with a warming trend. It'll be sunny but chilly on Wednesday with a high of 29 but, after that, highs will be in the lower to middle 30s all the way through the weekend and into the beginning of next week.
More good news? The latest 8-14 day outlook is leaning toward warmer than normal temperatures through the middle of December.
