Blustery Cold, With Minor Snow Accumulations Possible!

Cold, Blustery, Wet, and even Snowy! We have a lot of weather to deal with over the next day or two. Lets get started.
Above is a look at those cold temperatures moving into the area. This map is looking at 1:am Tuesday / early Wednesday morning. We will fall to a low Tuesday night of 22* degrees! With that cold polar air and rain snow mix, things will feel icy cold!

We are still tracking that low pressure system to our south that will continue to move north north west keeping us cold and wet! This system could even give way to some light snow accumulations in the area as we head into Tuesday evening / night. Check it out below.
As we go through the day tomorrow we will be tracking rain showers across the area, We could very well see some snow mixing in at times. Little to no accumulation will be expected during the daytime hours. As for rainfall we could see another .50" inches to .75" inches. As we head into the evening hours we will start to see more snow mix in before changing over to all snow later on that night (Tuesday Night).
Above is a surface chart looking into 7:pm Tuesday evening. You can see that rain changing over to snow. We will also see winds gusting as high as 30Mph. So things will be Blustery cold! Expect a high of only 41* degrees. However it will feel much colder with the icy winds and wet rain / snow mix!

As for the current thinking on snowfall, Take a look below.
Currently I'm looking for a wide area of .25" to maybe an Inch seen in the pink areas. With 0.50" or less just to the East of that pink area. The heavier amounts look to be to our northwest this time around. Currently looking for 1" maybe 2" inches in the white areas. Overall nothing to heavy this time around. However we still need to take it slow as this would be a very wet slushy snow!
