Partly cloudy skies Wednesday night give way to increasing cloudiness as an occluding cold front approaches from the west.

Snow showers develop after midnight/early Thursday and continue through the afternoon with a chance for rain mixing in during the afternoon as temperatures rise above freezing. Mostly cloudy skies and cooling temperatures are expected Thursday night with a chance for snow showers overnight.

Partly sunny skies Friday give way to increasing clouds Friday afternoon as a low pressure system tracking north of the region pulls a cold front towards the region with increasing chances for snow showers Friday night.
