Ed Hanna's 10:00 p.m. forecast

A fast-moving storm brought a good amount of snow to the region Tuesday.

Accumulation amounts ranged quite a bit across the viewing area, with our southern locations picking the most snow. Lighter amounts fell to the north/northwest. 

An average of three to six inches of snow fell across most of the area, with one to three inches further to the north/northwest. 

Slick conditions have developed on the roads, so please be careful when traveling around the area.

With the storm racing away from the area, we will see a dry and very cold air mass moving into the region overnight. 

Look for skies to clear overnight, with temperatures plummeting into the middle teens. This will cause any snow on roads, driveways and sidewalks to become as hard as concrete and very difficult to remove.

Mostly sunny skies and cold conditions will be featured from Wednesday through Friday, with highs topping out in the middle and upper 20s.
