Snow & icy mix to rain....

We are looking at this quick shot of wind-driven moderate to heavy snow, sleet, then freezing rain before going to rain pretty quickly.

I cannot even rule out a rumble of thunder.

Much of the area will pick up 1" or less of snow/ice.

A corridor of 1-2.5" is possible largely along & north of US 24 & east of US 421.

Temperatures will rise with rain to melt the new snow & ice away quickly.

By the time the rain ends early Monday morning, total liquid of 0.50-1.30" is possible with highest amounts in the south.  In the far northwest, less than 0.50" will tend to fall.  Again, a rumble of thunder is possible.

Some areas of fog are possible early Monday as winds go light.

After highs tonight of 36-42, we should drop to 31-36 by early Monday.  So, with potential of fog & moisture & wetness around as the rain tapers, watch for a few slick spots in the northwestern counties as temperatures fall to 31-32.

System to watch is Wednesday night-Friday AM.

A mix of everything (snow, sleet, freezing rain, rain) is possible with strong winds & then bitterly cold air behind it.

There are still questions regarding exact track & more dominant precipitation mode, but agreement is that clipper will merge with southern system to make for a substantial to significant storm system (with direct impacts here in some form).

Next one to watch after February 12-14 would be around February 17 (a week from tomorrow).
