Dorchester and the surrounding area are once again in a winter weather advisory until Tuesday 3:00 a.m. CST. (Did we mention we're not even a week into winter?)
But the blizzard that had been predicted won't hit our area -- and for that we are grateful. Instead of up to 10 inches, forecasters now say 2-4 inches.
Here are the nasty details and radar images for the Dorchester/Lincoln area from the National Weather Service:
