The large band of steady, moderate snowfall we dealt with on Wednesday has moved away to the east, but the storm system responsible for producing that snowfall is still just to our south and will continue to bring thick clouds and some snow showers to our weather picture for today and tomorrow as it slowly drifts eastward through the mid-Mississippi Valley. Look for areas of fog for the morning hours today with a few stray flurries possible. Light snow showers are expected to develop and then rotate around that storm system for our Thursday afternoon. Snowfall will be much lighter than the activity we experienced on Wednesday with less than half an inch of accumulation in most spots through the afternoon and evening. High temperatures will be mild by January standards with low to mid-30s in most of the area today to go with just a light northeast breeze.
The gray, unsettled wintry weather will continue on Friday with a chance of light snow showers off and on through the day, yielding up to half an inch of accumulation. A few spots of freezing drizzle may mix in at times later in the day and for the evening as the storm system pulls away to the east. High temperatures tomorrow will be in the low to mid-30s once again with just a light north breeze.
The weekend looks drier, but still generally mild with high temperatures in the lower 30s and light winds. We'll have thick clouds Saturday and then a few breaks of sunshine will be possible Sunday between storm systems.
