Patchy fog, spotty drizzle, and freezing drizzle will be around during the morning. Otherwise, a quiet and warm day ahead of some sunshine developing this afternoon. If you’ve been anxiously waiting for snow and cold it’s coming with a pattern shift by the end of the week. A trough digs in with an upper-level low-pressure Thursday into Friday. Ahead of it, we will have a surge of warm air, which could push highs near 40° on Wednesday. Then, cold air lingers for the rest of the month. This set up will push a system across the area with light snow moving on Thursday afternoon and continuing through Friday with lake effect snow taking over during the weekend.
