Graphical depiction of the weather story for today.

High pressure moves off to the east today, with breezy south-southeast winds developing under partly sunny skies. Temperatures will rise into the mid-upper 30s, and will not drop off too much tonight as strong south winds continue ahead of an area of low pressure moving toward the area. Light rain or drizzle will develop during the late evening and overnight hours, though with temperatures expected to remain above freezing, no icing is expected. Some freezing rain and snow will occur farther north into Wisconsin and Michigan. The low will move across the area Thursday morning, with light rain changing briefly to a mix of rain, sleet and snow before ending. It will be windy, with northwest winds gusting to 35 mph at times Thursday. Temperatures in the 30s will remain steady or even fall as colder air moves into the area. Another low will affect the area this weekend, with the potential for some accumulating snow.
