We're dodging quite the winter storm bullet today as our much talked about storm system gets ready to move through the area by this evening.
The heaviest snowfall potential continues to remain well off to the west and north where places out in central Iowa and western Wisconsin could see up to 8-10 inches of snowfall before everything is all said and done. Here the storm system will be close enough to keep us in the warm sector meaning rainfall likely along with strong winds early on.
Rain will be with us for much of the morning and afternoon hours with even a few thunderstorms not out of the question. Winds will be gusty this morning with speeds between 25 and 30 mph likely before relaxing some later this evening.
The rain should be pretty much to the east of the area by dinner time with wind speeds diminishing greatly. As the storm pulls away overnight a light band of snow will be possible but again amounts are not expected to be much, perhaps a dusting at best.
Wednesday will continue to be cloudy and windy with just slightly cooler temperatures as highs retreat to near 30 degrees. Calm conditions will be seen for the remainder of the week with periods of sunshine returning and temperatures staying seasonal.
Today: Showers and thunderstorms likely. Windy. High: 41
Tonight: Showers ending early. Slight chance of light snow late. Low: 33
Wednesday: Mostly cloudy and windy. Scattered flurries possible: High: 30
Thursday: Partly sunny. High: 29
Friday: Partly sunny. High: 35
