165

Yep…this is not an April Fool’s joke! Run and grab bread and milk now as a 1/2 inch of snow is possible on the plateau tonight as temps near freezing in many areas. Saturday night into Sunday morning looks like another chance of widespread frost and then we move into a warmer, pop-up storms type of pattern.

We will update as needed and as always bookmark your Close To Home Weather Page. You can find it here. For Live Local radar, watches, and warnings.

This Afternoon
A chance of rain showers and sleet. Partly sunny, with a high near 46. West wind around 15 mph, with gusts as high as 25 mph. Chance of precipitation is 40%. Little or no sleet accumulation expected.
Tonight
