Region may get taste of winter

December has yet to settle in, but that’s not stopping the possibility of seeing the white stuff in the air tonight, according to the National Weather Service.
As the temperature drops into the low 30s, the NWS is calling for a 60 percent chance that the region will see snowfall, but meteorologist Jerry Hevrdeys said it won’t be enough to cause any problems in the area.
“You’ll see some flakes, but accumulation will only be in the high elevation areas,” he said.
The low pressure system will begin to make its way into the region by first bringing a steady of flow of rain throughout the day. By midnight, that rain will have likely shifted into snow showers.
Since the cold temperatures aren’t expected to last long, Hevrdeys said the total accumulation could be somewhere in the area of about half an inch.
After today’s possible snow showers, the forecast calls for the slight chance of snow early Wednesday morning. Temperatures are expected to rise slightly to a high near 43 with a low around 24.
The rest of the week is expected to be sunny and clear, with highs in the 50s and lows in the 20s.
