Snow squalls will produce around 2-inches of snowfall, but some areas could see as much as 4-inches. Snowfall rates within the most intense snow bands will exceed 1-inch per hour. Visibilities will be reduced to less than a quarter mile and road conditions will deteriorate as snow causes slippery, wet surfaces.
