Forecast: Mild conditions today, rain/wintry mix likely overnight

It’s the calm before the storm and we need to enjoy it.

A mild Wednesday will lead to more melting snow as abundant sunshine helps push temperatures into the lower 40s this afternoon.  Winds will start from the west and turn toward the south through the day and into tonight.

During the overnight we’ll have a close eye on a potent storm moving out of the central plains.  Rain and some wintry mix will become likely overnight with the potential for a few rumbles of thunder.

The potential exists for heavy rainfall tomorrow morning and flooding could become an issue with as much as one inch of rain mixes with melting snow.  A push of warmer air could lead to areas of fog Thursday as temperatures top out near 50 degrees.

There is a chance of on and off showers and even a few strong thunderstorms through Thursday evening.

Colder air will move in behind the storm system making for a much colder Friday and weekend.
