From strong storms to snow showers...Falling temperatures this afternoon and evening will lead to a few snow showers across the area. Temperatures will rebound back into the 60s next week.

Temperatures are falling into the 30s this afternoon. With the colder air, we could see a switch from rain to snow showers this afternoon. Little to no accumulation is expected. It will be very windy with winds out of the northwest. Expect wind gusts at 40 to 60 mph possible.
