It’ll be the nicest day of the week today! Highs will vary across the state with 30s in the north and the potential to reach 50 degrees in the southwest. There will also be a bit more sunshine than the past couple of days. This doesn’t last long as a low pressure system will pass through on Wednesday. This will create a good chance to see rain, snow, and ice. It all depends on how warm the temperatures will be… it is likely that the extreme northern tier will receive snow and further south will be a sleet. For a few hours, while the surface temperatures are below freezing, there is a chance that some ice will form on roads and cars. This will cause slick travel conditions for your morning commute. The rain/snow trend will last through much of the day before it moves out around dinnertime on Wednesday. By Thursday, the temperatures will be dropping back into the 30s and another chance of snow exists for Friday. At this point in time the models are trending most of the snow to the southern half of the state. We will continue to track this storm as it comes closer in time — there is still a lot of uncertainty for this system.
