This afternoon clouds will move in and thicken. A light snow or mix will develop for the afternoon and continue into the evening hours. Through tonight, generally light amounts are expected with only a trace to about 2 inches throughout the region through tonight, with some locally higher amounts in the higher elevations. High temperatures will be in the low to mid 30s.
Tonight early light snow or mix will taper off late. Lows will be in the upper 20s.
Christmas Day will start with a few flurries or sprinkles, otherwise we'll have a mix of clouds and sun with a high in the upper 30s to around 40.
Wednesday a large system heads our way. What will will see with this system will depend on the exact track. However right now it looks like it could be a mix at the onset, then parts of the region may see heavy cold rain or an icy mix while other areas may see snow which could be heavy at times in the afternoon. Highs will be in the low 30s. Again, we will have to hone the forecast as it gets closer and we get a better feel for the exact path. Wednesday night, the system pulls away.
Behind it, it will be windy and cold with snow showers and flurries for Thursday. There could be some steadier or heavier bands form in upslope areas near the I-80 corridor and along Route-219. Highs will range from the upper 20s to low 30s.
Friday we get a break with a mix of clouds and sun. Highs will be in the upper 20s to low 30s.
The next system heads our way on Saturday. At this point that system looks like it may bring us some light to moderate snow.
