But the precip will remain in the form of rain until sometime Wednesday night/early Thursday. At this time, we'll see a changeover to mainly snow. Although some mixed precip is a brief possibility Thursday, especially for eastern portions of our state, in the lee of the mountains. In any case, snowfall accumulations do not look impressive. Moisture associated with this system will be departing as that cold air really sinks in. So we're still lookin' at trace amounts of snow by Thursday.
High pressure will move build into our area to dry things out during the day on Thursday. But the cold air will stick around. By the weekend, a reinforcing blast of cold air will knock the bottom out of the temperatures with highs struggling to reach above freezing. However, we still do not have any long-lived cold air masses or impressive snowfall forecasts at the moment.
Have a great week!
