Mother nature isn't done pounding the area with snow just yet.
As city residents are finishing clearing walks and cars of snow from Wednesday's storm, the National Weather Service is predicting the area will see about 2 to 4 more inches of powder today.
"It looks like by the time it's all said and done, things should wind down late (today)," said Meterologist Craig Evanego. "We're expecting 2 to 4 inches (today)."
Evanego added that the weather service issued a winter weather advisory starting at 6 a.m. today.
The extra inches could push the week's total snowfall to over 1 foot as it already has accumulated 8.8 inches, according to Evanego.
The city continued to clear roads a day after Wednesday's storm but said is prepared for the incoming snow. William C. Wright, general manager of the city Streets and Parks Department, said it has sufficient staff on-hand despite the holidays.
"Many more of the alleys are cleared and hopefully this storm (today) won't be as heavy, but you never know," Wright said.
Colder air - today's high is 30 degrees - and "favorable" systems for precipitation are the reasons the area has seen so much snow recently. Evanego added, "We're just in a pattern."
Since last year's winter was "mild," Evanego said it didn't see much snow, but this recent string of snow storms is comparable to one that hit the area in March 2011.
"Looks like we had one in March 2011 that gave us about over 10 inches over a few days," Evanego said.
And although Wednesday's storm brought a mixture of snow, rain and sleet, Evanego believes the area will only experience snow today.
"I don't think it will be (a heavy mixture)," Evanego said. "This will be a little lighter. We're expecting it to be all snow - no sleet."
But even with just snow, drivers should use caution when driving.
"It's tough to say (how the roads will be)," Evanego said. "It still can be slick, so even with just snow definitely use caution."
According to Evanego there are no other snow storms on the horizon for the area, but as the cold air continues to "hang around," he said the possibility of another remains going into next week.
"The cold air is here. We just need to see if we get any moisture in the air or not," he said.
