The next 48-60 hours are going to a bumpy ride for the area as a prolonged, significant winter storm moves in. This storm will come in 2 different parts the 1st is this afternoon through Wednesday afternoon as low pressure heads towards the Great Lakes, an associated warm front will bring a sloppy round of wintry weather starting as snow for many then changing to ice/sleet and freezing rain then to all rain by Wednesday morning as warm air makes a brief appearance.
Part 2 comes Wednesday night into Thursday, as the associated cold front passes through and stalls just off the coast, cold air will crash in from the northwest as a wave of low pressure rides the front. This will lead to rain changing to a prolonged moderate to heavy snow with temperatures falling from the 30s into the 20s. The changeover will occur between 10 PM Wednesday and 3 AM Thursday, snow will linger through Thursday evening before ending from NW to SE
