So the evening commute could be a little messy with snow falling. At this point only minor accumulations on colder non-paved surfaces (grassy areas, car tops, patio decks)

SNOW ACCUMULATIONS: State-wide it looks like a thin slushy coating by late afternoon and early evening.

ROAD CONDITIONS EARLY THURSDAY EVENING: Roads look to be mainly wet, but with rapidly falling temperatures will need to watch for some icy spots. It all depends on how fast the pavement dries out before temps go well below freezing

Any snow ends by early evening, followed by record cold temperatures on Wednesday, with gusty winds adding to the winter-like feel.
