Spring may be in the air, but don't put those shovels, boots and scrapers away yet.
Early this morning the National Weather Service issued a winter weather warning for Mansfield for a storm system that will move into the area later today.
The late winter storm is expected to drop up to some seven inches of snow, sleet and freezing rain on the region between Monday night and Tuesday morning.
Stronger winds are also predicted, with gusts up to 35 miles per hour. The wintry mix and winds will at times reduce visibility to less than a quarter of a mile.
The snow is expected to begin late Monday afternoon. It will then mix with sleet overnight, before changing over to all rain early Tuesday morning.
"The accumulation of a light mix of rain on top of a light mix of snow will make travel difficult, especially during the Tuesday morning commute," the meteorologists stated in their advisory.
The warning is in effect from 9 p.m. Monday until 11 a.m. Tuesday morning.
