No accumulation expected
A few flakes will fly in the mountains and north today with a few stragglers reaching the shorelines. Isolated areas may get a dusting out it, otherwise, no accumulation is likely. Southern and eastern zones see high temperatures above freezing for the first time since December 26th. The mountains and north stay on the chilly side with highs in the 20s. Wind speeds will pick up in the afternoon, gusting from the northwest in the 20-30 mph range.
The breeze settles down tonight, skies clear out, and temperatures fall to around 0° for the north country to around 10° at the coast.
Thursday through Sunday appear messy
This gif image is presented to you to get rough idea of what to expect from Wednesday afternoon onward. There is some light freezing rain to contend with Wednesday night into Thursday morning, but it will be light enough that accretion concerns are not a concern. Freezing rain changes to all rain statewide by Thursday afternoon. Rain continues into Friday. Low pressure forms along the cold front and moves northeast during the day Saturday, which will bring in some sleet, but the main concern will be for freezing rain. The end time of all of this is still in question for Sunday. Most areas may see some snow as a parting gift as the storm moves northeast and the frontal boundary slides offshore. Guidance has varying ideas when that will happen. A blend of their ideas as snow ending Sunday morning south and west and in the afternoon for the north and east.
Stay tuned for more updates.
