Some wet snow may also fall on the zone from Washington, D.C., to Philadelphia and perhaps as far north as New York City on Monday.

Hazardous travel conditions are expected to develop in Mitchell and Floyd Counties late Monday night into Tuesday morning with the worst conditions developing after 7 a.m. Scattered snow is expected between 1 a.m. and 5 a.m. Snow pulls away from the area toward sunrise.

Snow began falling from 3am this morning while temperatures, which were in the low 40s, plummeted to below the mid-30s.

Heavy snow is possible. As of right now, the southern portion of the state is not expected to be impacted by the storm. Isle saw about 11 inches by early morning, and Hinckley got about 7 inches. We could have a record cold high temperature on Friday and a record low on Saturday morning, if it ends up just a degree or two colder than now forecast.

Winter weather advisories have been issued across the Philadelphia and NY metro areas, while heavy snow is falling along the I-95 corridor from Washington, Boston.
