Skies are cloudy early on this Wednesday morning and temperatures range from the mid 20s in Clifton to the upper teens further inland, winds are light northerly.
A low pressure system will move into the area today with snow developing around 1 p.m. and may come down moderately at times this afternoon. The timing for the snow is similar to the November storm that caused massive traffic problems but hopefully the snow will not come down as heavy as back then. Still it still could be a mess. Total accumulations of 2-4 inches are likely. The precipitation will change to sleet and freezing rain this evening before changing to all rain before ending mainly before daybreak tomorrow.
Some sunshine by tomorrow afternoon will help temperatures rise into the 50s ahead of a cold front that will come through at night.
Seasonably mild and dry Friday into the day on Saturday but another storm system will give us precipitation Saturday night into Sunday, this time it will be warm enough so only plain rain is expected.
Dry weather with near seasonable temperatures early next week.
