Snow will start to fall tomorrow night and continue heavy at times through the day on Wednesday.  Significant accumulations are possible in the watch area.  Traveling will be difficult and not recommended.  Winds will become quite gusty causing blowing snow which may result in lower visibility.

    MaryEllen, please….cover up your cleavage….and don't put your black microphone right in the middle of it against your light colored sweater! That microphone could be clipped higher towards your neck. Is it ratings week or something? You and the evening news anchor seem to have something for letting it all hang out. It does not look very professional.

      It's disappointing when people feel like they can say anything they want to people via the internet. She's a real person. And you are being extremely rude. If you don't like the style of her dress you could easily watch another local news station.
