A cooler than normal day is in store breaking our unseasonably warm trend. Temperatures are starting off in the 20s with feels like temperatures in the teens for most. Highs will be in the 30s and low 40s. A mix of sun and clouds are expected today with calmer winds.

A slight chance for a wintry mix/light snow is possible tonight. Looks like most of the precipitation will happen during Wednesday morning and be out of here by tomorrow afternoon. Some moisture from the Great Lakes plus a system down to our south will help bring the precipitation and cooler temperatures for tomorrow’s precipitation chances. Some models are honing in on more of a snow chance, but the upper levels show that a warm nose (warmer temperatures above the surface) is possible tomorrow. This is a huge factor in indicating if it will snow or be a sleet/snow/rain event. For now, I am mainly banking on a wintry mix with snow being seen at times tomorrow morning.

Accumulation isn’t looking impressive, but some slick roads/surfaces could be possible thanks to temperatures dropping below freezing tonight (in the 20s). Snow amounts will be less than an inch for the majority of the area,

Most of the viewing area will stay under an inch for snow accumulation Wednesday morning.

We are drier by tomorrow afternoon and stay dry for much of Thursday before we are more unsettled again by Friday. Warmer temperatures build in again to close the work week.
