Today will feature mainly cloudy skies along with a medley of precipitation. This morning, the far north and mountains will see snowflakes, inland and foothill areas will see a mix of sleet and freezing rain, the coastal plain will see some freezing rain, and the immediate coast will start out with plain rain. By this evening all but the farthest north and west of mountains will be seeing plain rain with just a few holdouts of ZR up north. Rain will be heavy at times this evening and a good inch of water is expected to fall across much of the area.
Rain winds down this evening and temps will rise as westerly breezes will break up the last remaining cold air and everyone will be near or above 40 degrees by midnight.
More rain/mix/snow arrives tomorrow evening and into Thursday before cooler air arrives this weekend.
