.DISCUSSION...
The area will be on the northern fringes of a storm system passing

increase from west to east Wednesday and Wednesday evening,
continuing into Thursday. The bulk of this precipitation looks to
fall along and south of I-94. A wintry mix could occur as well
Wednesday night into early Thursday. Drier weather will return for
