Getting colder...Winter Storm?!

Well the cold front has een presing through the area this morning and afternoon, and temperatures are falling back in the 40's and even 30's. Take a look at the surface map below:

Rain will continue along the cold front with the potential for some severe weather with the main threats dmaging winds and hail. Once again, flooding will be a concearn today. The rain will shut off after the cold front pushes through and temperatures will drop into the 30's by Wednesday morning.

The day Wednesday should remain dry with highs making it in the upper 40's to mid 50's arounf the area. There is a chance of some rain Wednesday night as another stronger storm system begins to affect us. The rain chance for Wednesday night right now is only about a 20 or 30 percent.

The higher precipitation chances dont come in until Friday and Saturday. There is even potential Friday night or Saturday of rain tapping into colder air, and changing to snow and there is a chance of a major snowstorm nearby. There are many questions about this storm and it is still several days out. For us to get a snowstorm, the system would have to take a perfect track and tap into enough cold air. Right now, the cold air is in the forecast, so we will have to see what happens in the coming days. I am not excited with this system yet.
