A messy weather system is expected to move through the region, bringing with it increased winds and the chance of thunderstorms, according forecasters.
The National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) expects the first bout of weather to begin about 1 a.m. Thursday.
Conditions are likely to worsen before noon and will remain poor through Thursday, according to NOAA. Between noon and 3 p.m. Thursday, the chance of thunderstorms is significant. By later in the afternoon and into the evening, rain is nearly certain, according to forecasters.
Friday's forecast calls for mostly cloudy skies as temperatures start to drop from Thursday's highs in the upper 50s.
Temperatures are expected to fall to around freezing overnight Friday with snow likely in the early morning hours Saturday and 2-3 inches of accumulation possible before a changeover to rain occurs with temperatures climbing to the low 40s during the day.
The track of the system will determine potential snowfall amounts. Check back to Daily Voice for updates.
