There could be a few breaks in the clouds late this afternoon and early evening before we cloud up again as the next upper level disturbance approaches. A second round of snow showers hits early Wednesday morning. Most likely opportunity will hit between 4a and 9a, unfortunately along the same time as morning rush hour. Some minor accumulation will be possible, but should stay under an inch all around. Getting breezy Wednesday afternoon with a wind chill in the teens and low 20s. High pressure settles in the rest of the week, but the cold air remains. In fact, a push of arctic air arrives on Friday with highs only in the 30s.
