Winter Storm Update: Feb 25-26

The winter storm for a majority of the southern half of the state is being a early spring storm more than anything as rain continues to fall. The northern half of the state has mainly turned over to a light snow or freezing rain precipitation. However, not much in the way of accumulations have occurred thus far over the state.

Snowfall accumulations over the state should remain under 6 inches throughout the state for even the heaviest banding. Difficult forecast and just mainly playing it by ear and sight with the reports coming in throughout the state. Traveling conditions still likely to be hazardous as the transition from rain to snow occurs, creating a slush on roadways, etc. Some freezing rain may also be encountered for some areas in the afternoon...

More updates possible late this afternoon, likely after the transition from rain to snow.
