Just when you thought the weather was going in the right direction!

There’s a common weather saying: Don’t like the weather? Wait a few minutes, it’ll change. We’re going to see one of those classic weather changes on Thursday. After mild weather today and tonight, a strong cold front will slam through the area, knocking temperatures from the 40s early in the day back into the teens by the evening. This front will bring with it a mess of wintry weather. Rain will change to freezing rain, sleet, and eventually snow. Also, strong winds developing in the wake of the front will lead to areas of blowing snow. Another thing to watch out for is the liquid precipitation that falls early in the day may freeze on surfaces, including roads, as temperatures rapidly fall during the day.
