A sharp arctic cold front associated with the Colorado low will blast across the region early Wednesday morning with strong southwesterly winds. High pressure moves in from the west over the weekend; however, upper disturbances keep a chance for snow showers in the forecast through Sunday.

More rain, freezing rain and snow are all expected and while Wednesday's high will be a tad improved at 5C, tomorrow's low is expected to drop all the way down to -12C. A few flurries are still possible today, but no major accumulation is expected. South wind 6 to 8 miles per hour. While slippery spots are most likely in the AM, there will be slick spots as you travel north of Kent County during the afternoon. Many roads are snow covered or snow and ice covered with reduced visibilities due to blowing and drifting snow.

Thursday's high should reach the mid-50s. Gusts to 40 miles per hour or higher are possible. Chance of precipitation is 60%. We will have a mix of sun and clouds on Friday with highs only in the 20s. Staying from the northwest at 5-15 miles per hour.
