A snow squall is a short-duration of heavy snow that may bring near white-out conditions but overall snow accumulation will be very light. Snow squalls can create dangerous travel conditions due to rapidly changing visibility.

The snow squalls are expected during or shortly after the morning commute and may linger into the early evening commute. Despite occasional intense bursts of snow, overall accumulation will be light, generally under a half inch. While the snow may briefly coat roads, it will quickly melt with snow remaining on grassy and elevated surfaces.

Temperatures will hold in the middle to upper 30s. As temperatures fall tonight, some refreezing and thus icy spots will be possible. Weather conditions will gradually improve with more sunshine and slowly warming temperatures Wednesday and Thursday.
