Another winter storm heading our way for Wednesday


SUMMARY: Winter Storm Warnings and Winter Weather Advisories are in effect now as the second winter storm of the week will affect the area by late morning/midday Wednesday and continue into Thursday. The precipitation may start out as a mix of sleet, freezing rain, or snow then transition to a cold rain across our southeastern counties by late in the day as temperatures slowly warm. Wintry weather may continue across our northwestern counties Wednesday night and Thursday where temperatures stay a bit colder. We’ll continue to watch forecast trends throughout the day. Stay tuned!

WEDNESDAY: Areas of sleet, freezing rain, and snow will build into our western counties by noon before spreading across the rest of the area during the afternoon. All depends where that freezing line sets up and how warm/above freezing we can get will determine what precipitation you will be seeing in your area. The latest forecast models are in and it looks like almost all of us will be seeing some type of winter weather by early afternoon, before that freezing line splits our SE counties to a cold all rain event to a winter wx event in our NW counties early evening. Stay tuned! Afternoon highs in the low to mid 30s. Winds NE 10-15 mph.
