Thickening Clouds Tonight, ALERT DAY Thursday
Wednesday’s High: 40°F, Tonight’s Forecast Low: 30°F
There were more clouds than sun today, but our high temperatures were able to reach the upper 30s to 40 degrees!
Clouds will thicken overnight as a cold front approaches. Lows will be near 30 degrees.
Our western communities will see the chance of a rain/snow mix early Thursday morning. As colder air builds in from the west, that precipitation will change over to snow as the front moves east by mid to late morning. The snow will continue through tomorrow night and into Friday when it becomes more scattered. A WINTER STORM WATCH is in effect for our northern and western communities from Thursday morning through Friday night, so this is a long duration storm. A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in effect for our southern and eastern communities during that same time period. Those under the Winter Storm Watch can expect 3″-6″+ of snow possible, while those in the Winter Weather Advisory can expect 2″-4″ of snow. Travel will be impacted for Thursday and Friday, so both days are ALERT DAYS.
The snow will taper off Friday night, but a few flurries could linger Saturday morning. Otherwise we are looking at a quiet, cloudy and seasonable weekend with highs in the mid to upper 20s.
Temperatures will remain seasonable into next week with highs in the mid to upper 20s and mainly cloudy skies.
Have a great night! –Michelle Poedel
