As temperatures continue to drop, cities across the metro will see rain mixing with snow as well:
This snow comes at a very inconvenient time because it’s right in the middle of your evening commute, but the good news is, the snow won’t last too long. Expect light accumulations on the grass and cars, but not much on the roads. The rain/snow will start to taper off after 7 PM. As the precip moves out, the clouds will follow suit, so you can expect clearing skies overnight.
Here’s the problem:
With mainly clear skies overnight, temperatures will plummet into the low-20s by Friday morning. Even though temperatures will be in the low-20s tomorrow morning, the wind will make it feel even colder – wind chills will be in the single digits and teens! Some of the puddles may freeze, so be aware of icy spots on the roads! Expect plenty of sunshine, but not much of a warm up – temperatures are only expected to top out near 30°.
