Updated Wednesday, January 28, 2015 at 5:35 PM...
It was another cloudy and mild today, but hopefully you soaked up the warmer temps because a series of cool downs will occur over the next week. Highs today were in the low to mid 30s.
Clouds and moisture have been thickening throughout the day ahead of a storm system to our west. This system will continue to move into our region starting this evening. We'll see a chance of a light wintry mix or freezing rain/drizzle from this evening through early Thursday morning. Those in our northern and eastern counties are under a FREEZING RAIN ADVISORY from 9pm tonight through 6am Thursday. Please use extra caution on the roads tonight and tomorrow morning!
Once the precip moves east tomorrow, expect mainly cloudy skies and breezy conditions, Winds will pick up out of the northwest with gusts up to 30-35mph at times. Highs will be in the low to mid 30s.
Looking Ahead... Clouds decrease Thursday night, and it's going to be considerably colder than the past few weeks. Lows will drop into the upper single digits to low teens with blustery north winds.
Good chance of a little sunshine returning on Friday with seasonable temperatures. Highs will be in the mid 20s.
Temperatures will warm back into the low 30s on Saturday ahead of our next storm system. We'll see a chance of snow Saturday night and during the day Sunday.
Ready for some bitterly cold air to return? Ready or not, it will be back starting Sunday. Highs Sunday will only be in the upper teens to low 20s, low to mid teens Monday and upper teens to 20 degrees through Thursday.
Have a great night and please take it easy on the roads! -Michelle Poedel
