Areas of drizzle, freezing drizzle with a few light rain & snow showers are over the area as of 4 p.m.

It is not quite cold enough aloft for all snow.

Patchy to areas of fog are around as well.

Temperatures are running 31-34 over the area.

Some snow showers, freezing drizzle & freezing fog are likely tonight. 

Any ice accumulation would be a thin veneer & any snowfall accumulation would be localized & under 0.5".

Watch for slick spots, especially on bridges & overpasses & secondary roadways this evening through tonight & into tomorrow morning.

, some scattered snow showers & flurries are possible tomorrow. 

Any snowfall accumulation would be brief, localized & under 0.5".

After lows in the upper 20s tonight, highs tomorrow will run in the lower to middle 30s.

Thursday has the potential to feature a brief period of some sun (we can hope!) for part of the area after morning freezing fog.  Cloudy skies should follow late with a few flurries.

Disturbance from Iowa may bring some snow to rain/snow Friday, then system Saturday looks to bring rain/snow to snow.

Either may bring very minor accumulation.  We will monitor.

After brief shot of cooler air, a sudden warm-up arrives Sunday as wind turns to the southwest at 15-32 mph.

Sunshine is also indicated on Sunday with mixing allowing for a mixed sunshine with some stratocumulus.

Note the strong, howling southwest winds Sunday night through Monday with gusts 30-40 mph at times.

We should turn mostly cloudy to cloudy Monday, but highs of 55-60 are possible after 50-55 late Sunday.

Rain & isolated thunder Monday night to Tuesday should change to period of icy mix & then snow with potential of some very minor ice & snow accumulations.

Winds may gust 40-50 mph behind Arctic front Tuesday with crashing temperatures. 

We may fall from 55-60 Monday evening to 10-15 by early Wednesday morning (with wind chills to -10).

February 9-12 is a period to watch for wintry weather with mixed precipitation & snow possible as colder pattern overall settles in.
