Meteorologist, Shayne Keetley gave MyPGNow.com a snapshot of how much snow has fallen already.

“We recorded about nine centimeters of snow officially overnight last night (Sunday). Going forward here, it’s going to continue to snow fairly heavily as you might be seeing out your window and it will transition in the next few hours and taper off.”

The warning is still in place for Highway 97 and the Pine Pass.

“Travel conditions will be your normal winter driving conditions that we often see this time of year with the snow and some rain mixed on top, we will have the slush conditions with overnight temperatures hopefully staying above zero,” added Keetley.

A high of five degrees is being predicted with plus temperatures being forecasted for most of the week.

In total, 15 to 20 centimeters may accumulate once the storm subsides.
