Thawing out by this afternoon!

WEDNESDAY: It’s another cold start to the day, but we’re tracking a return of southwesterly winds. That will aid in a warmup through the afternoon as temperature jump into the Mid-30s. Back above freezing! Clouds increase late in the day ahead of our next approaching system.

TONIGHT: Under heavy cloud coverage an upper level wave will bring us rain and snow chances by early morning. Most areas stay dry through the night, as temperatures fall back into the mid 20s. Light southwerly winds calm through the night, not creating for much of a wind chill.

EXTENDED: Late Thursday morning rain and snow chances arrive, but will be light and spotty. North of I-70, we see a slight snow chance, the best chance of light accumulation is in the far northeast portion of the state. We’re not expecting accumulation as temperatures will be marginal. As you head south snow makes the changeover to rain. With the system pushing east some leftover moisture is possible in the wake of it. We may see patchy drizzle Thursday night and into Friday morning. As temperatures drop towards freezing through the night we could see some slick spots on the roadways for the Friday morning commute. We dry out for Friday before our next system ejects out of the Rockies. This storm will kick out into the central plains early Saturday advecting in deep Gulf of Mexico warmth and moisture. This unstable air will be followed by a fast moving cold front moving through the area Saturday afternoon. Widespread rain and thunderstorms are possible with temperatures close to 60 Saturday. The preliminary severe threat is limited at the moment, but there’s a chance that could increase. Behind Saturday’s storms temperatures cool into the mid 40s with a dry start to next week.
