Snow and Blowing Snow and Cold Temperatures Late Tonight and Monday Morning….An Arctic cold front and upper level storm system will combine for a band of light to moderate snow over the region this evening into early Monday morning. Along with accumulating snowfall, winds  are expected to increase to 20 to 30 mph from 3 am through 9 am Monday morning, resulting in blowing snow and poor travel conditions. The stronger winds will occur during the Monday morning commute and could pose a brief period of significant travel impacts.
