By the time the precipitation ends this afternoon, much of the week will be dry with nice temperatures.
The atmosphere is slowly cooling down, causing rain to transition to a mix and then to snow by later this morning into the early afternoon. Some of these bands of precipitation could be heavy, even when it is snow. The problem is the ground has warmed up significantly where the snow has melted and the air is warm too. We already saw our high of 39 that will level off in the mid 30's the rest of the day. Rain could mix in with snow really at any point. In a nutshell, we could see heavy snow at times, but accumulation will be held to 1-3" because it will melt quickly. All of this ends by 3:00 PM. Temperatures drop to 16 under a cloudy sky and only warm to 22 tomorrow with a partly cloudy sky. Winds will be from the NNW 10-15 MPH.
Whatever the amount of today's precipitation is, it will melt quickly this week as temperatures return to the 40's Thursday and Friday with partly cloudy skies. The weekend turns a little cooler with highs near 30 with sunny skies. The next chance for precipitation comes Monday in the form of flurries and a high of 37.
