It will be bright and sunny through the morning hours, though it will be quite cold. Temperatures will warm quickly today however, with highs this afternoon reaching into the low 40s.
Clouds will begin to increase this afternoon as a storm system gathers strength over the Mississippi Valley and lower Great Lakes.
Tonight the forecast becomes rather complicated. A storm will track into the Great Lakes, dragging a cold front eastward toward Ohio. Precipitation will spread eastward across the area late tonight. The precipitation will likely begin as rain, but temperatures will fall once the precipitation begins and this could cause some areas to change to freezing rain, or even over to snow. Temperatures both at the surface and aloft will be very close to freezing so a change of only a degree or two will make a big different in the precipitation type.
On Tuesday, the cold front will move across the area and temperatures will fall during the afternoon. Any mixed precipitation or rain during the morning will change over to snow showers during the afternoon. Some light accumulations will be possible.
Snow showers will continue Tuesday night and into the day on Wednesday as colder air spreads across the region. Lows Tuesday night will be in the teens with highs on Wednesday reaching the mid 20s.
High pressure will build back across the region on Thursday bringing a return to dry weather. High temperatures on Thursday will climb back to around 30 degrees.
