Today wrapped up about as cloudy and cool as expected, but the weather is expected to take a more active and wintry turn by late Thursday.
Tonight plan on mostly cloudy skies with lows in the 20s.
Thursday will feature cloudy skies, but an approaching system to our south and west will bring in a little mixed precip (rain and snow, no freezing rain!) to the area late in the afternoon, and especially after sunset.
Mixed rain and snow will be the story through early Saturday with minimal snow accumulation. If you're headed west this weekend, however, 2-4" of snow is possible from Chicago to Des Moines.
