Some patchy light drizzle will change to some patchy light freezing drizzle & light snow this evening & into tonight.

As lows tonight drop into the mid 20s, a few slick areas are possible, even with only trace-0.02" liquid amounts.

Wednesday looks gray with highs near 30 after some morning patchy light freezing drizzle &/or fine, grainy light snow.  Watch for a few slick spots.

Thursday-Friday system may or may not affect us some.  The bulk of it looks to stay south of.  Potential is there for a bit or rain/mix, so kept 30% potential precipitation due to uncertainty.  Highs will run in the 30s to 40 Thursday-Friday with lows in the upper 20s to 30.

Pattern will turn more to northwest flow next week signaling colder weather.

Warm, wet phase should go cold phase, then more non-influential with Polar Vortex getting flaccid, becoming loose & bringing bursts of bitter cold beyond mid-January & into February.

Stratospheric warming well underway with loosening developing.  All points to end of milder regime that has been the mainstay since mid-December.
