While some of us saw a little bit of rain today, tonight that rain will be changing over to snow. We’ll see rain begin to change over into snow just after midnight. Temperatures will be cooling down into the upper 20s by sunrise, which will help the snow stick to the ground quicker. Winds will also be a little gusty tonight, coming in from the west at 10 to 15 miles per hour.

Snow will begin to pop up around midnight.
