Another threat of marginal wet snow is in the forecast. Chances of accumulation are about the same as in the above photo, with no significant travel impacts expected.

Forecast: Another cold morning is expected Wednesday with lows in the upper 20's. Clouds begin approaching in the late morning and afternoon as our next system arrives. Wednesday night a chance of precipitation arrives, possibly mixing with snow late in the evening or Thursday morning. Snow levels are expected to reach around 500 feet by midnight Wednesday night, and drop down to around 200 feet Thursday morning for a short time.

Thursday rain or rain and snow showers are expected with the snow level starting the morning at 200 feet and rising in the afternoon. Breezy conditions are expected as well with southwest winds gusting to 35 mph possible. High temperature in the low 40's is expected.

Thursday night through Saturday afternoon a chance of showers remains in the forecast. Rain and snow or snow showers are expected in the night time hours and rain showers are expected in the day time hours. Highs in the mid 40's and lows in the 30's.

We get a break Sunday with sunny skies and a high temperature dare I say, near or just above 50°F. Another weather system approaches Monday bringing a new round of what looks like just rain showers.

Bottom Line: We are remaining on the margin of rain or snow showers. We could see a wet inch or two on the grass or other non-pavement surfaces through the week, but any impact on the roads is not expected. Sunday could be warm, and it looks like we might be slightly closer to normal temperatures heading into next week for a first time since February 1st.
