Midnight Update: Scattered rain showers have been developing tonight, with a changeover to snow expected around 3am Tuesday morning. Winter Weather Advisories have been issued for counties along and east of I-75 for Tuesday morning, with a dusting to 2 inches of snow possible. Even though our ground temperatures are warm, the biggest concern is for high enough snowfall rates during the Tuesday morning commute, that could lead to slick roadways. The snow is not expected to stay around for very long, after the snow showers taper off around 10am Tuesday. Sunshine will return Tuesday afternoon, yet temperatures will be very cold, with wind chills in the 20s, and an afternoon high temperature of 36 degrees. Northerly winds will be sustained from 10 to 20 mph with gusts around 30 mph. These breezy conditions on Tuesday, will also aid in drying the roads off Tuesday afternoon, from the morning snow showers. Tuesday night into Wednesday morning low temperatures will fall into the lower 20s, with only a high of 40 degrees for Wednesday afternoon. High temperatures get back into the 50s from Friday into the weekend, with rain showers possible for the weekend.
