Say it isn't snow! Flakes, cold in the forecast Monday night

News-DemocratNovember 11, 2013 

Veterans Day in the metro-east will be like two completely different days rolled into one.

Early in the day the temperature will rise quickly, hitting a high of 60 degrees by about 1 p.m. But, as the day moves along, things are expected to change quickly.

The temperature will begin to tumble in the afternoon as blustery winds of up to 31 miles an hour move into the area. By 8 p.m. there is a 70 percent chance of rain. By 11 p.m. the temperature will drop near the freezing mark and the rain is expected to turn into snow showers.

No accumulation is expected. But roads could become slick in spots as the temperature drops to an overnight low of 25.

The Tuesday forecast calls for sunny skies. But that doesn't mean the temperature will climb very much. The high Tuesday is expected to top out at 35. Overnight Tuesday into Wednesday the low will drop to 17.
