A day of big change across the Midwest, and the 4Warn forecast appears right on track. Kent's blog below still holds true.
After such beautiful weather yesterday, today is a complete 180-degree turnaround. Temperatures drop, and occasional showers and thunderstorms roll through our area.
It still appears as though there is a brief window of time late tonight and early Thursday when lingering rain could mix with and change to snow. We might even see a little sleet during the change-over. However, with a warm ground and only a brief period (at most) of wintery precipitation expected, we're still not anticipating any accumulation of snow or ice in our viewing area.
Those travelling to the west, north, or northwest should be prepared for a better chance of accumulating snow, but even in those areas, we're not expecting more than two or three inches at the most.
If you want to brave the elements, bundle up and join the whole News4 This Morning crew for the 2007 Thanksgiving Day Parade, Thursday morning downtown at 8:45 AM. Temperatures will be in the middle 30s with a wind chill in the 20s! There might even be a flurry or two early in the parade. For the less adventurous, you can watch the parade live from the heated comfort of your own home on News4 from 8:00 to 11:00 AM.
Again, our forecast is still on track, so for more details, take a look at Kent's blog entry below.
