After the snow ends, even gustier winds and colder temperatures will arrive.

Becoming Windy and Colder
Temperatures:  Steadily Falling 2-12 degrees by morning
Wind: N 15-25 mph  Gusts to 35 mph
Partly Cloudy, Breezy and Cold
Highs: 14-18 degrees
Wind: N/NW 15 -25 mph Gusts up to 30 mph
Partly Cloudy and Cold Withe Flurries Possible
Highs: around 20 degrees to the lower 20s
The area of snow is slowly moving eastward towards the coast but it will take a bit longer to cross the bay.
As the coastal low intensifies, the winds will increase in speed. Considerable blowing snow and bone-chilling wind chills will make outdoor exposure uncomfortable and dangerous. Travel will be difficult as well, especially with falling temperatures. While the final snowfall total won't be especially memorable, I think the lingering effects of the snow combined with the strong winds and severe cold will quite memorable and miserable. Be safe if you venture out late tonight or tomorrow morning
