Bundle up in extra layers. Temperatures will rise to the 30s on Wednesday as precipitation continues.

The heaviest snow is expected to fall over the western counties throughout the day. Some areas could see over half a foot, while most areas will likely receive less than six inches of snow.

Some precipitation will continue Wednesday night but will likely end on Thursday morning as the wind gets strong again. temperatures will heat up to the 40s and 50s Thursday afternoon which will help melt some of the snow.

Expect more sunshine on Friday as the sky clears a bit. Temperatures are expected to reach the 50s and 60s and the weather is expected to stay pretty pleasant for Halloween weekend.
