Clouds will be increasing tonight ahead Friday’s round of wintry precipitation and the associated First Alert Day. I think the more commute will have few issues and stay dry for most of us. It’s after 9am when a few spotty areas of light drizzle or freezing drizzle would move through. Temperatures will be bouncing around 32 degrees after 9am eventually warming to near 35 at some point in the afternoon.
