Areas of drizzle and/or light rain will develop over the area overnight and during the day on Thursday. A strong cold front will move across the area from late afternoon into the early evening. So, while gusty southerly winds will help produce a very mild day with highs in the mid 50s area-wide, there will be a quick return to sharply colder conditions in the wake of this front. There will likely be a mix of freezing rain, sleet, or snow in the evening and overnight, with areas southeast of I-57 favored for some accumulations. With rain in the forecast for Thursday, quickly dropping temperatures will create slick conditions on untreated roads Thursday night. Slip sliding away, slip sliding away. It’s going to be an ice skating rink out there. With the precipitation wetting the roadways followed by a drastic nose dive in the temperature and high winds, it’s going to get real out there.  So enjoy the brief warm up. This weekend through most of the week we are labeling pretty damn cold with temps in the teens to single digit.
While a lot of you are putting on your whining pants and crying a river of “I am so cold” tears, just remember, this is a normal winter so far. Then there are those who wait until we have subzero temps to start training for that marathon later in the year. Running in single digit or subzero weather is nuts PEOPLE. Oh yeah there out there all serious and stuff in their latex tight fancy fancy running pants as their breath is crystallized. Kinda reminds me of an old steam locomotive. So as you all drive by rolling down your window to utter the words “You are so brave. Great job! Keep up the work”…. I will be rolling by yelling “Hey you in the fancy pants, you’re a flippin nut job! You’re going to freeze up and fall on someone’s car”
Just label me Mr. Encouragement
