See more of the story More snow showers and flurries are on the way over the eastern Great Lakes and the Appalachian Mountains through Friday. The heaviest snow squalls will greatly reduce visibility to a quarter of a mile or less, making travel very dangerous. The snow can also make roads quite slippery, so people should allow extra time to travel today.

From the Green and White mountains of the northern Appalachians to the mountains of western Virginia, 1-3 inches of snow can fall through tonight. Up to 3-6 inches of snow will accumulate in the mountains of West Virginia and to the lee of Lake Ontario.

Watch for freezing drizzle in western New York and across northern and western parts of Pennsylvania that can add to travel problems. Portions of I-80, I-86, and I-90 could become very slick and dangerous.
