Intervals of light to moderate-intensity snow will continue to
impact the Tuesday evening commute. While snow will not be
persistent, travelers can expect rapid changes in visibility along
with a coating of wet snow on asphalt. This will lead to potential
travel difficulties at times along Interstate 81, Interstate 77

the 20s will freeze any snow or wet pavement, making for slippery

Travelers through the evening commute are advised to be aware for
sudden changes in visibility, as low as one half mile at times,
and to drive slowly in rapidly changing weather conditions.
