      • 33°
      • 13°

      Updated Thursday, January 18, 2018

      Mild weather will track into the viewing area for the next few days. Highs will climb into the low to mid 30s today with mostly sunny skies. Plenty of melting snow will create very dirty cars and low windshield-washer reservoirs... it will also re-freeze tonight as temps drop back into the teens. That will still be about 10 degrees above average, however, and a good start to get us into the upper 30s to mid 40s Friday afternoon. Breezy south winds will help, too.

      Messy car weather continues into the weekend, but we continue to watch a very strong storm system. It remains on the more northern track which brings us mainly rain on Sunday. Northwestern counties will have more of a rain/snow mix as it tracks through. Everything changes to snow as the cold air tracks in on Sunday night and we will keep a chance of snow, blowing snow and falling temps on Monday. Snowfall amounts will depend on when that changeover occurs. Cooler weather continues for most of next week.
