There could be more snow overnight into Wednesday, with new accumulations of 1 to 3 inches possible. The nighttime low will be about 30 degrees.
The snow should ease by about 8 a.m. Thursday, as the sun emerges and the temperature climbs to about 40 degrees.
Friday should be sunny with a high in the low-40s, the weather service predicts.
