Rain & Snow Forecasted for Area

After a busy morning we got a little break from the rain and now we are tracking scattered showers once again.

A slight chance of rain after noon, mixing with snow after 5 p.m.

"There will be a risk of travel disruption through this period with volatile, stormy weather combined with the cold brining a risk of winter thunderstorms and outbreaks of thunder snow". Still, the high pressure dominating, keeping the weather front at bay but as the high shift further north, the winds, instead of coming right from the south, start coming more from the east. The high Friday should reach about 48 degrees.

The forecast added: "There will be an increasing chance of some more unsettled interludes developing, with showers or longer spells of rain spreading to many areas at times".

Cold air from Russian Federation will cause snow to fall across the country, leaving the United Kingdom feeling "more like Moscow than the Mediterranean", says to one meteorologist. Be mindful, though, a hard freeze is on the way for tonight, so it will be even colder Wednesday morning with lows in the 20s. North northwest wind 5 to 9 miles per hour becoming calm.

Saturday could see a continuation of the wintry mix with mostly cloudy skies and a 40% chance of precipitation. West wind 9 to 11 miles per hour. Tuesday, winds will shift to the north, bring in colder air. Northwest wind 9 to 13 miles per hour. Low: 38. High: 64.

Tomorrow: Mostly Cloudy, Isolated Showers (20%).

Meteorologists say fair weather is expected to settle back across our part of the country Tuesday night through Wednesday night. Wind: S 5-10 miles per hour. Low: 40. High: 54.
