As you can see the Valley is not included with the snow, however, the temperature is set at just above zero.

So If this holds I expect anything that falls to fall as either snow or freezing rain. This will cause very poor driving conditions no matter what.

Please be careful out there. Let’s hope it stays a little colder and more snow than freezing rain falls. But it will be warm by a monday afternoon anyway and rain will come for sure Tuesday with temperatures over 5°C.
