Some Winter Weather on the Way for Friday Night

Snow is once again in the forecast, according to the U.S. National Weather Service, Wakefield. Snow will start to move in from the southeast this afternoon and continue through the night, ending early Saturday morning. About 1-2 inches of snow is expected for our area, which could pose some problems on the roadways, as temperatures will remain below freezing through tomorrow. More snow is expected for areas to our southeast, so if traveling to the Southside tonight or tomorrow, please plan accordingly.
