Thursday: Mostly cloudy to cloudy skies to start off the day. The chances for a wintry mix will continue until about 10 AM, but will mainly be isolated to higher elevations and areas well north of I-40. That wintry mix will slowly transition into chilly sprinkles after 10 to 11 AM and we could see a few showers linger into this afternoon. The warmer ground temperatures will prevent any accumulation. Still, be careful of patchy slick spots on the roads. We'll dry things out by late afternoon or early evening today, then hold the dry weather until late Friday night.

Friday: Friday looks dry, starting out mostly cloudy then we'll transition into a touch more sunshine by the early afternoon. Unfortunately, clouds will be increasing by the late afternoon and into the evening with rainfall expected late Friday night into Saturday.

The Weekend: Saturday looks wet with showers likely in the morning and early afternoon. Past that, we should see showers tapering early Saturday evening. A little moisture may linger in the area, therefore, providing a few light sprinkles Saturday evening and even a few flurries early Sunday morning. A gradual clearing in clouds and cooler high temperatures in the middle 40s are expected Sunday afternoon.

**Winter officially arrives this Sunday @ 6:03PM EST!

Have a good rest of your week!!
