A Flood Watch and a Winter Storm Watch are out for the entire region late Tuesday through early Thursday. Heavy rain develops Tuesday night into Wednesday morning and may put down 1”-3” in some areas. Arctic air pushes in from west to east on Wednesday with heavy sleet and snow taking over. That setup could produce several inches of accumulation. Snow will slowly end from west to east Thursday as bitterly cold air continues to push in.
Showers and a few thunderstorms will push through. We are not expecting widespread severe weather, however, there could be an isolated cell that could reach severe criteria. This will especially be the case for the southern zones. We will see the bulk of the rain move out during the morning hours for west of I-75 and afternoon hours for east of I-75. As the front moves through, much cooler air is to follow. Highs this afternoon will be in the upper 40s to lower 50s with an isolated shower or two.
Going into the weekend we are looking at great conditions. Highs on Saturday will be in the mid 50s with 60s on Sunday. Both days you can expect plenty of sunshine. Next week appears to be another nice start with a cool front moving through during midweek.
