It's a dark, dank day as rain has rolled into the area. Temps are chilly, too, in the upper 30s. That all will change, however, as around noon temps will slide into the lower 30s and any rain sticking around will change over into snow. Up to half-an-inch is possible during the day, according to the National Weather Service. The snow continues into the evening and night, tapering off around midnight while temps dip into the upper teens and wind chills even lower thanks to some gusty winds. Get used to this newest chill, too, because it's going to stick around the rest of the week.
