Clouds will increase Thursday with cold rain closing in on us in the evening.  This, after partly cloudy & 30-35 tonight, 46-51 Wednesday, 24-28 Wednesday night & 44-47 Thursday.

Rain will change to snow before ending Friday morning.  Less than 1" of accumulation on mainly grassy surfaces is possible.  Roads look wet. 

The sun should then appear with gusty north-northwest winds.  Any snow will melt very quickly with highs 35-40.

It will cloud up in the evening.  Another wave of snow is possible Friday evening-night.  It should clear out late in the night to Saturday morning.  With temperature dropping to 20-25 & breezes from the northwest, wind chills will drop to 8-15.  A few slick spots are possible on roads Saturday morning. 

Less than 1" of accumulation is possible.  It is possible that a few isolated locations in the far north see 1" of snow.

It should all melt quickly with mostly sunny skies Saturday & highs 32-36.

Burst of warmth will arrive after this first wave of cold.  Note the strong southerly winds & the green or rain as far north as the UP of Michigan & into Ontario near mid month.

Arctic air should follow with the potential around this time period of a Nor'Easter from the Gulf Coast to Northeast with rain, snow & wind.  Should this occur, some snow should reach as far south as Alabama & Georgia.

Note in the graphic above the upper disturbance over Colorado & New Mexico & the lowering pressure in southern Texas, showing the potential development of the Nor'Easter.
