Snow showers arrive between 1pm and 4pm from west to east. Snow ends later tonight with small accumulations, mainly on grassy surfaces. The high: 42. Roads should remain mainly wet during the daylight hours with an increased chance of a freeze-up after dark and overnight. But drive cautiously today and tonight as the precipitation is falling.

TONIGHT: Snow ends by 9-11pm tonight. The low: 29. Some black ice is possible overnight into Thursday morning. We see some overnight clearing.

THURSDAY: Some morning black ice is possible in a few spots in areas where the temperature dips below freezing before roads and sidewalks have a chance to dry. Mostly sunny skies return with a high of 46.

FRIDAY: Look for mostly sunny skies and a nice high around 49.

SATURDAY: Cooler air arrives for the weekend. Saturday is brisk and seasonably cold with a mix of clouds and sun. The high: 40. A little snow is possible with the arrival of the arctic front that brings us this colder air.

SUNDAY: Look for a good deal of sunshine but with a cold and brisk high around 32. That's ten degrees below normal. A flurry is possible. Overnight lows will drop down into to 20s in most areas, with the teens possible in some suburbs.
