Winter storm watch to take effect Tuesday

Snow amounts overall range from 2 to 5 inches, with freezing rain amounts up to a quarter of an inch possible. Eventually rain will change to snow showers with little to no accumulation expected by Tuesday night.

The next storm will approach the region by the end of the week.

Sunday, Feb. 10 will be mostly sunny, with a high in the mid 30s but wind -chill values between 15 and 25.

Tonight: Cloudy. A chance of light snow in the evening, then light snow likely after midnight. Lows in the upper 20s. Comfort-wise, the chilly conditions will linger throughout the day, with highs only reaching the low 50s.

Thursday: Mostly cloudy. Highs in the upper 30s. Clouds and showers will continue tonight with temperatures lingering in the low to mid 40s.

Thursday: Mostly sunny and a tad cooler. As this occurs, snow continues to changeover to an icy mix of sleet and primarily freezing rain through daybreak.

Wednesday will be colder and blustery with flurries and a high in the low 30s. Highs will warm into the mid 60s tomorrow, a 20 degree warm up. With rain falling, saturated ground and melting snow will create additional high water issues, hence the new Flood Watch!
