If light icing happens on elevated surfaces, such as bridges and overpasses, could make driving hazardous, forecasters said.

Rapelje saw 10 inches, and Laurel reported 8 inches of snow. The bulk of the snow will fall overnight and end by daybreak on Sunday. Occurs when rain falls into a layer of air with temperatures below freezing. Less ice will lead to higher snowfall totals and more ice will lead to lower snowfall totals, which is what is to be expected across a large portion of the region. The high will be near 31 with a north northwest wind of 5 to 7 miles per hour becoming west in the afternoon. Snow develops in the central part this afternoon and continues tonight.

MONDAY: No Snow! Partly to mostly sunny with a high in the low 30s. New ice accumulation of around a 0.1 of an inch possible.

Cloud cover will hang around throughout our Sunday morning, but the sky will gradually clear that afternoon.
