We expect light snow to develop around midday Wednesday and then transition into sleet, freezing rain and rain later into the evening and overnight. Snowfall accumulations will be rather light, at less than 2 or 3” before the transition. The timing of the onset of the snow could impact the late afternoon and evening drive time with slick roads. Overnight, into early Thursday morning, the wintry mix shower threat remains but it ends through the late morning Thursday as the storm moves away. Overnight lows will rise into the low to mid 30s.
Thursday will have a lot of dry time with the best chance of any precipitation before 8 or 9am. Highs climb to around 40.
Friday and Saturday look quiet but Sunday brings some rain with highs in the mid 40s. Sunday could see temperatures making a run at 50. It turns colder Monday with a chance of snow showers. Highs will be in the mid 30s. There are no signs of any bitter cold in the next 7 days, although, we do see some signs that cold weather will be sticking with us through the end of the month and potentially into the beginning of March.
