It’s going to get messy around here as we head into the second half of the week.
Forecasters say Wednesday will be windy and warm, followed by a quick drop in temperatures by Thursday and a potential winter storm that will bring rain, ice, and snow.
A wind advisory has been issued through 8 p.m. Wednesday. Gusts of up to 45 mph are possible Wednesday as temperatures reach near 50 degrees.
A winter storm warm is in effect for Thursday.
Heavy mixed precipitation is possible Thursday. Total snow accumulations of 3 to 6 inches and ice accumulations of up to one tenth of an inch are possible.
Rain changes over to a wintry mix including the potential for freezing rain Thursday morning before transitioning to all snow Thursday afternoon-evening.
Potential snow and sleet accumulations of 4 to 6 inches are possible particularly for areas along and south of I-69 down to I-94. There is the potential for up to a tenth of an inch of ice accumulation particularly for areas south of M-59.
A flood watch is also in effect through Thursday afternoon due to melting snow.
It’s going to be an interesting few days of weather.
