Quiet Wednesday; next system Thursday afternoon
Another fair, quiet day in the forecast Wednesday.
This morning there is a split in temperatures again. There are still some lake effect clouds for our northwestern counties. Our eastern half had clear skies overnight, which allowed temperatures to drop into the low to mid teens. We’ll see a mix of clouds and sun today as temperatures warm to a seasonable 34 degrees.
Overnight most of us stay cloudy, with temperatures falling into the low 20s. Tomorrow the next system arrives by the afternoon. Precipitation starts as a rain/snow mix, and may fall periodically as just rain showers. It gets windy Thursday night and temperatures begin to drop dramatically.
Precipitation switches to just snow overnight. By Friday morning, there could be slick spots on the road (a flash freeze overnight can’t be ruled out yet) and there could be some accumulating snow. It looks like most will stay around or under 2” of snow by Friday. Snow showers wrap up Friday morning.
Over the weekend there are additional lake effect snow shower chances, but the bigger story is the Arctic air. Highs will be in the low teens and overnight lows will be in the single digits, or may possibly dip below zero. This is without wind chill, which could make us feel like we are in the negative teens.
Today: Partly cloudy. High 34.
Tonight: Mostly cloudy. Low 22.
Thursday: Afternoon rain/snow. Turning to snow overnight. Breezy. High 38.
Friday: AM snow showers. Cloudy and cool. High 20.
