Our first winter storm of the season is wrapping up with the end result being more wet than white for many of us, but as colder air now begins to move in behind the departing storm, any residual slush or standing water will change to ice. Temperatures that are starting off near the freezing mark will drop a good twenty degrees by the start of Thursday morning, while winds begin to crank up from the west, leading to wind chill values near zero by daybreak.
Though little additional snowfall accumulation is expected tonight with lingering flurries, falling temperatures and rapidly freezing conditions will likely keep the winter advisories in place overnight.
The winter storm warnings and winter weather advisories remain posted until 6am Thursday morning.
Frigid conditions will continue to take hold in the coming days, with highs only in the single digits Friday and Saturday, with several of the upcoming nights dipping below zero. We'll be watching for our next snow potential coming in sometime Sunday, but right now it's only looking like perhaps a few inches.
