CK/TITAN RADAR ANALYSIS AND MORE



<< Good evening, I'm Meteorologist
Robin Reed in the SkyTracker7 Forecast
Center. Winds will remain rather gusty
this evening, but diminish some late. A
disturbance will move in overnight,
with a slight chance of rain and snow
before 8am, then a few rain showers
during the afternoon Wednesday. Any
accumulation would be light for most
hometowns, however, 1-2 inches are
possible in the Highlands and western
mountains. Wednesday is still on the
chilly side as another front moves
through. Winds will increase again as
well, gusting 25-30mph during the
afternoon. Thursday through Saturday, a
series of disturbances keep coming at
us, introducing more clouds and a
better chance of rain/snow showers. If
you're making adjustments to your
schedule, the time to watch would be
Thursday afternoon and Thursday night
for the potential for freezing rain.
