Shot of snow overnight, then warmer

A storm system over the middle of the country will take aim at us tonight after a sunny, quiet day today. Clouds will move in during the late afternoon, but most of the precipitation should hold off until around midnight or later. Some of the snow could linger into the morning commute on Tuesday, but total accumulations should only be an inch or two for most locations. A few spots may be able to get 3″ or 4″ out of this system, however, so be aware that some extra time might be needed tomorrow.As far as wintry weather goes, that is it for this week!A second storm system will develop over the southern Plains and lift into the Midwest by Wednesday. This will push warm air northward, with temperatures near or above 40º from Wednesday through Saturday.While the warmer weather will be welcome by many, it cannot get warm without snow melt. Add on some rain Thursday into Friday, and at the least I feel there will be a threat for ice jam flooding. More serious flooding does not look likely at this time, but there are still plenty of uncertainties about how warm we will get, how much snow will melt and how much rain will fall.Get the latest forecast and radar at our Local Weather Center.Enjoy the warmer weather, but keep checking back for updates on any flood potential.
