After a couple of inches of snow across Cumberland County Monday morning, the area awaits rounds two and three of this latest winter storm.
A winter storm warning remains in effect for the county through 6 p.m. Tuesday, with heavier snow expected Monday night followed by freezing rain Tuesday morning, capped off by heavy rain Tuesday night.
The ABC27 forecast calls for 2-5 more inches of snow Monday night across the region, mainly between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. As the snow tapers off temperatures are expected to rise, leading to ABC27 Meteorologist Brett Thackara's forecast for freezing rain to form across the region by sunrise Tuesday.
The icy conditions are expected to last until early afternoon Tuesday before changing to rain. Before any changeover happens, several inches of snow will likely have fallen along with a glaze of ice on top, Thackara said. Tuesday morning travel is expected to be hazardous.
Travel likely won't improve until after lunchtime Tuesday. Heavy rain is possible Tuesday evening and overnight before the storm finally exits early Wednesday.
