A brief break in the precipitation is expected Wednesday with mainly cloudy skies. Winds will be light out of the northwest at 5-10 mph with highs in the upper 20s.

Our next weather-maker is expected to arrive late Wednesday night and continue into Thursday. There are still several details to work out with this particular system, like strength and storm track, but what we do know is that snow will be the main precipitation type. Some accumulation is anticipated, but it’s too early to determine the exact totals.

Quieter weather settles into the region just in time for the weekend with mostly cloudy to partly sunny skies expected. Temperatures will remain seasonably warm in the mid to upper 20s.
