After a beautiful sunny Sunday, you'll need to grab your jacket and umbrella this morning as you are heading out the door. Widespread rain showers will move through the Tri-States today. The rain will not be continues from sunup to sundown. Especially late this afternoon and evening as we'll see a decent lull in the action. Highs today will be in the low 40s. At times it will be just a little breezy with winds up to 15 mph. More rain is expected later tonight. Then, as temperatures fall we'll see some snow mixing with the rain and then it will transition to all snow. Snow showers will be ongoing tomorrow morning, especially for the northern tier of the Tri-States. By the morning commute, the northern tier could have a little snow starting to accumulating. The rest of us would have little to no accumulation. Your forecast for the rest of tomorrow will depend heavily on where you live. The northern tier of the Tri-States may stay in the cold sector of our next system, which means you would see snow off and on throughout the day. The rest of the Tri-States would start the day off with snow, but as temperatures warm would see that snow transition to a rain/snow mix and then transition to rain. Heading into tomorrow night, we temperatures fall below freezing, everyone would see just snow. That snow would then continue into early Wednesday morning. Right now, snow totals by Wednesday morning again depend on where you live. **These numbers will also change over the next day as the forecast details continue to be fine tuned.** The northern tier will see the most snow with 3" - 4" (isolated 5" for far northern Lee County), the mid section of the Tri-States will be near 1" - 2" and the southern tier would be around 1" or less.
