MILDER THURSDAY RAIN AND SNOW LATE
Rain showers will accompany the next weather system with the timing here late, well after dark Thursday. The push of milder air ahead of the next “clipper” system will bring area temperatures into the 40’s for the first time this month officially. The average of 7 computer models rain bearing forecasts places about a quarter of an inch of rain down for the city. The spread ranges from .10″ to .35″. The system will bring colder air in as it moves east and with it a potential for a turn over to wet snow briefly during the morning commute Friday.
Winter storm warnings have been posted in nearby Illinois, Wisconsin and Michigan where a half-foot of snow may come down.
