Marshall County Emergency Management Agency Director Jack Garner released information on a potential snow and winter weather event early Tuesday morning.

The National Weather Service has preemptively issued a Winter Weather Advisory, which will be in effect from 1 a.m. until 7 Tuesday morning. 2 to 4 inches of snow are expected to fall county-wide during that period before heating during the day transitions the snow to rain. The daytime rainfall will help melt some of that snow but will also cause very slushy roads.

Expect slick roads during the snow portion of the storm, transitioning into less slick but still messy roads as the day progresses.

Also, on the radar early… a more significant snowfall event looks imminent late week to early weekend, followed by subzero wind chills. Still too soon to forecast specific amounts. Winter is finally here!
