While we could see a scattered shower here or there, generally it's simply cloudy skies into the morning. However, it will be colder. We'll start the day either side of about freezing and most areas will only make it t the upper 30s for the afternoon. Average high is 44 degrees at this time of the year.

This colder air will set up the chance for freezing rain by Thursday morning. An area of low pressure just south of us will trigger the precipitation. We are tracking the location of this low as it's position on Thursday could shift our forecast. As of now, it appears temperatures will rise above freezing keeping Thursday with cold rain. Then, as the temps drop late Thursday into Friday morning, the temp profile changes. This gives us the likely chance for sleet and light snow on Friday morning.

In both of these cases, it appears as nuisance precipitation. But, it doesn't take much to get a road icy, so use caution on Thursday and Friday morning. It looks dry this weekend.
