First Alert Weather Forecast

A major winter storm pushes into the region on Wednesday and will bring a lot of wild weather. Here's a breakdown of what to expect:

- Heavy rain early Wednesday may cause some local high water issues.

- Arctic air quickly works in from northwest to southeast Wednesday morning into the afternoon. This will change to rain to heavy sleet and snow.

- There is a ton of moisture with this system Wednesday night and early Thursday. That will give many areas several inches of sleet and snow.

- Accumulations will range from 3"-6" in the far southeast to 6"-12" across much of the rest of the region.

- Some thunder and lightning will be possible during the sleet and snow.

- Record cold air will follow this up by Thursday night with many areas going below zero. This could be the coldest air ever recorded in the month of March around here.
