Today’s unseasonably warm temperatures are expected to plummet overnight and possibly bring the first snow of season. National Weather Service meteorologist Roger Vachalek says the cold front will bring a nearly 30-degree change in temps.
“By tomorrow, temperatures will be dropping down into the 40s and falling throughout the day, ending up in the mid to upper 30s during the afternoon and early evening hours,” Vachalek said. Rain will accompany the cold air and bring the chance for snow flakes.
“We are looking at the possibility of the rain changing over to snow or mixing with some snow before it ends tomorrow afternoon and evening,” Vachalek said. “At this time we’re not anticipating too much in terms of accumulation.”
North winds of 10 to 30 miles per hour will add to the wintery mix. Sunny conditions should return to the state Thursday and Friday with highs in the upper 40s and low 50s.
