Rain will make its way through the area tomorrow with pockets of freezing rain, sleet, and possibly some snow mixing in especially for those north of I-64.

We’ll be windy as well with wind gusts as high as 40-50 mph at times.

Winds will flip out of the northwest on Wednesday night/Thursday which will bring in much colder temperatures.
