Snow is expected to continue throughout the weekend, according to Opensnow.com meteorologist Joel Gratz:

“Friday will be a stormy day with intense snow through the early afternoon and very strong winds. On Saturday, we could see more snow moving from south to north through the day and into Saturday night. Sunday will be mostly dry. On Monday and Tuesday, a narrow band of snow could produce sneaky powder. Then more snow could fall on Wednesday and Thursday. That’s a lot of action!”
