Extended Outlook: We'll see a break from the snow of about 24 hours once it stops falling Monday afternoon. A colder and potentially stronger storm will drop in from Canada Tuesday afternoon, with snow in the forecast through late Wednesday. Totals from this storm could eclipse Monday's storm, due in large part to the below freezing temperatures already in place. In fact the cold is the other big story. Highs through Wednesday will stay near to below freezing, with overnight lows in the single digits and teens. Halloween looks dry, but cold. Best to incorporate layers into this year's costume!
