A weak disturbance with limited moisture to work with is producing scattered snow flurries and snow showers in portions of the northeast this afternoon. The snow shower activity is expected to linger into this evening, especially in portions of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York.
While today’s event isn’t remotely significant by any stretch of the imagination, residents should remember that it doesn’t take much snow to create big problems. No snow accumulation is expected although temporary reductions in visibility will be possible in the more
intense showers. Wind gusts up to 30 mph will be possible at times with these showers. Drivers that encounter these snow showers and squalls should exercise caution and reduce speeds until dry conditions return. While no accumulation is expected, a light dusting is possible in some of the heavier snow showers; such a dusting can make some roads and sidewalks slick.
Once the sun sets, wind gusts associated with these snow showers will dissipate too.
