The heaviest snow totals will occur on grassy and elevated surfaces since persistent cold has been lacking across the region recently.

That is not to say that motorists should let their guard down. There can still be some accumulation on roads and slick travel, especially since the snow is falling at night and where it comes down heavily for a time.

Airline travelers should also prepare for possible flight delays.
