Even though the meteorological spring begins Saturday, Old Man Winter isn’t done with us yet.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for Saturday evening through late Sunday night.  Models indicate we could receive 6 to 10 inches of snow by the time the system moves out of the area in the early hours of Monday morning.

Stay tuned to Newsradio 1240 and 107.5fm WTAX throughout the weekend for the latest weather conditions.  We also stream at http:\\www.wtax.com.  You may also download our free mobile app.
