After heavy frost with patchy freezing fog this morning & 20s, the afternoon was nice with highs 46-50.

High & mid clouds have been on the increase afternoon-evening & will continue to thicken.

Some scattered showers tomorrow morning will increase to widespread rainfall tomorrow midday through the afternoon.  Isolated thunder is possible. 

Winds will strong & gusty from the southeast, then south.  Sustained near 25 mph with gusts around 40 mph area-wide.  Some gusts will exceed 40 mph over the area.  Secure loose objects with these strong winds ahead!  A few branches may come down, as well. 

It would not take much to bring some of the high winds only 1000-5000' off the ground to the surface!  At 1500', winds will be screaming at 60 mph, while 5000' winds will be roaring at 80-82 mph!  If we could warm it up a bit & get just a little bit of CAPE or buoyancy, gosh, it would not take much effort to tap into that wind energy & bring severe gusts of 60 mph with a rain band.  It would need to warm up & get some bits of CAPE, however.

Solid, widespread rain will go to scattered showers tomorrow night.  Winds will still be strong, turning to the southwest.

First image is regular radar reflectivity, second is the winter max on showing rain, freezing rain, sleet & snow:

Cold front should pass early Friday morning, followed by sunshine until low clouds roll in with time Friday.  Winds will turn to the west, then northwest & slowly decrease.  Friday will still be a windy day, though.

Total rainfall should run 0.50-1".

After a high of 52-57 by later tomorrow evening, we should reach highs of 54-59 by early Friday morning.  Temperatures should fall all day Friday through the 40s with 30s by evening.

A few sprinkles &/or flurries are possible later in the day.

Some scattered flurries & snow showers are possible Friday night to Saturday.  Saturday looks like a gray & dreary day with continued decreasing winds.  Highs should reach 32-35 after 29-32 in the morning.

Bitter cold with some snow will give way to a brief warm-up mid-January, then bitter cold through late January.  There will be plenty of opportunities for ice & snow.

Multiple nights well-below zero lows are definitely on the table.
