Crone says the storm should exit the region by early Monday afternoon and precipitation will quickly end from west to east, but road conditions and travel may remain hazardous in many locations into Tuesday morning because of the snow and ice.

By Wednesday, Crone says temperatures will be back down into the 30s for highs, with some gradual warming by Thursday and Friday with highs in the mid-40s.
