Rain mixed with snow falling until this afternoon


Rain showers, mixed at times with snow showers, will create a soggy morning around the Stateline this Sunday.

The showers will mainly fall as rain throughout the morning and early afternoon. With enough cold air in place, however, a rain/snow mix or straight light snow may take over for brief stretches. If we do see some snowflakes, they'll stick to grassy or non-pavement surfaces, since those are generally cooler than the pavement. Be ready for wet roads regardless this morning, and if you do see snow, take it slower on the roads, just in case. All told, there may be less than 1" of snow on the grass by the end of the morning.

Rain showers would take over by the end of the morning, if snow takes over briefly, and last through early this afternoon.

Use our Interactive Radar to track the wet weather from home, and download the free 13 Weather Authority app for your smartphone to keep tabs on the radar and weather conditions on the go.

Warmer weather in the 40's and 50's returns by the middle of next week, so when our next chances for rain arrive Wednesday morning and Thursday evening, the weather will be warm enough for only rain showers.
