The first accumulating snow hits the Tri-State after 8 p.m. on Tuesday night and continues into the Wednesday morning commute. Until then, the weather will be quiet and winter-like as temps fall to the low 20s by 7 a.m.
Moisture from the west will slide into the area as soon as Tuesday afternoon. This means we could see flurries or even a snow shower in the late afternoon. Highs will only reach the low to mid 30s.
The main moisture band triggering light to moderate snow will begin Tuesday night and continue overnight ending around daybreak. By then, snow could create slick spots or treacherous driving in some locations:
Tues 4 p.m.: Chance for Flurries
Tues 9 p.m.: Light snow
Midnight: Light to Moderate snow
Wed 6 a.m.: Snow ending

Gradual clearing will lead to a partly cloudy day on Wednesday with highs in the mid to upper 30s. But, here's the rub. Winds shift and I have 60s in the forecast by Friday. A dry day Thursday leads to showers on Friday and Saturday with more clearing on Sunday.
Chance afternoon flurries
Light to moderate snow develops
