The band is picking up speed and narrowing as it moves east, reducing residence time and accumulations over any one area. The snow will exit east by around 7pm. Clearing skies tonight will allow temperatures to drop into the low to upper 20s tonight. The well advertised hard freeze and heavy frost is on track. For Wednesday, expect partly cloudy skies and highs in the low to mid 50s. Could see some showers skirt the northeastern CWA in the afternoon. .LONG TERM...(Wednesday Night through Tuesday) Issued at 243 PM CDT Tue Apr 20 2021 Frost and freeze will be possible again Wednesday night into Thursday morning as temperatures fall into the upper 20s to mid 30s (coldest over the eastern CWA and warmest west). Showers will be possible Thursday afternoon into Thursday night ahead of a trough and surface low moving into the central US. Widespread showers and thunderstorms are then possible Friday into Friday night, with some linger showers into Saturday morning. Forecast QPF for this time frame is generally at 1.0-1.5 inches. Highs will be in the mid 50s to low 60s Thursday and Friday, but will be warmer in the mid 60s Saturday. Dry days are expected Sunday and Monday with highs warming further to around 70 Sunday and the upper 80s Monday. Could see a system move into the area Tuesday into Wednesday.
