QUINCY (WGEM) -

Snow has largely come to an end across the Tri-States.

As the storm system moves off to our southwest clouds are expected to stick around for much of the day with northeast winds of 10-20 mph occasionally gusting to over 25 mph. This will continue to create some blowing snow although the heavier, wetter nature of the snowfall will help to minimize the wind-driven hazards normally present with lighter snowfalls. The compact nature of the snow will help contribute to poor traction issues on roadways. Slow down and use caution while driving.

Saturday’s high temperature was reached in the early morning hours so in the wake of the departing storm system temperatures will be falling into the mid to upper 20s by later this afternoon. Saturday night looks quite cold with lows in the single digits or lower teens for most and areas in the northern and western tiers which saw the greatest snowfall totals could approach zero degrees overnight Saturday into early Sunday morning. Clouds should stick around overnight with some clearing into early Sunday morning.
