The official start to winter is at 10:28 a.m Thursday, and it will feel a lot like winter as a powerful front blasts its way across the state.
After a pretty dry start to our snow season, the best chance for snow is heading our way on Thursday. This by no means is a big snow producer, but it will be the most we have seen this season.
Initially, temperatures will be above freezing as the precipitation arrives as drizzle first. A wintry mix will develop by lunchtime, and continue into the early afternoon. The switch over to snow will take place later in the afternoon and evening, and continue until midnight.
Totals will be on the light side from a half inch to around an inch. It should be just enough to mess up the evening commute on Thursday.
Ground temperatures are way above freezing, but roads will become wet and slick especially elevated surfaces like bridges. Be safe!
