Some accumulating snow looks increasingly likely late Tuesday night into Wednesday, followed by a wintry mix and then rain.

Rain will mix with sleet at times tomorrow night and into the overnight period, but we are not expecting any accumulation or disruptions.

Confidence is increasing in a period of accumulating snow late Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, but uncertainty remains around when the snow would change to a wintry mix and eventually rain.

Presidents’ Day looks good. Tuesday night and Wednesday? Not so good.

Temperatures comes back to earth tonight, with most of the weekend looking dry and seasonable.

The quality of snow is mostly wet groomed with some frozen granular, but the coverage is excellent.

A storm with significant frozen precipitation is possible between Tuesday night and Thursday.

There are real reasons for optimism in the journey to address the accelerating risks of climate change.

A two-day north-south combo punch turned out to be a soaker – and it hit almost everywhere in the state.

We should aim for the 60s to close out the work week.

Freezing rain is a risk on Tuesday night in our colder areas.

It is probably contributing to the wet weather across the southern United States and might pump up global temperatures.

Meteorologists have unleashed a torrent of complaints and negative reviews.

Snow on Saturday may mix with rain or might even slip away to the south.

  • David Streit

Temperatures are on the seasonably mild side into tomorrow.

There's a lot to watch in the days ahead.

  • Wes Junker

February is running more than 20 degrees warmer than usual in northern Alaska. Open water has been seen recently as well.

Oh, and another storm is possible next Tuesday into Wednesday.

Temperatures falling below freezing, especially north and west, may create some new slick spots.
