Heavy rain will be the issue through the first half of the day. Significant snow & sleet will be the call during the afternoon through tomorrow. Look for almost impassable travel in some spots tomorrow.
Scattered snow showers and snow squalls will continue through the evening hours. At any given moment you could go from seeing nothing flying to near whiteout conditions. That's the nature of these snow bands.
It's just plain old cold once the snow actually clears the area completely. We'll see lows around 17 degrees and when you factor in the gusty winds we could see wind chill readings in the single digits. Nothing unusual for the cold season that we have experienced around here.
We'll begin shaking off the cold on Thursday with highs jumping back into the upper 50s. At the same time that our temps climb, our rain and storm chances will increase throughout the entire area. The first round of rain won't arrive until late Thursday night.
Friday and Saturday look like some real soakers. Showers and thunderstorms will be possible on Friday. Some cooler air, and by cool I mean only in the mid 50s, for Saturday. So really no major cold air outbreaks anywhere in this 7-Day.
