Discussion:
The snow has slowed down in intensity since early this morning. However, snow will return to normal this afternoon and continue tonight.

You might consider delaying non-essential travel until the weather improves. The accumulation of snow can make it difficult to navigate surfaces such as roads, walkways, parking lots, and highways. The accumulation of snow can have a significant effect on urban rush hour traffic. Reduce visibility while driving and slow down. Be aware of tail lights ahead and be ready to stop.
