2:45 PM Update

An area of low pressure will pass to the south of the region tonight into tomorrow. This low will bring the first snow of 2013.

Tonight
Clouds gradually increasing.
Temperatures should fall below freezing after 8PM.
Snow should develop after midnight,
with an 80% chance of snow by 4AM.
There is the potential for an inch of snow by 7AM.
Temperatures will bottom out at 26 around sunrise.

Wednesday
Snow continuing after sunrise.
An 80% chance of snow through 10AM.
An additional inch is possibly by noon,
with lingering snow showers through the early afternoon.
Afternoon high around 36.

Total snowfall will likely be around two inches.
Winds will be calm.

At this point, the morning commute looks to occur right in the middle of the storm. There is the potential for an inch of snow to be on the ground by 7AM, followed by an additional inch or so throughout the morning. Temperatures should be cold enough to allow snow to stick to all surfaces. The main determining factor between a delay and a cancellation will be how much snow actually falls vs what is currently forecast.
