From the National Weather Service this afternoon: A strong low pressure system has ushered in very warm air overnight, but that will change this afternoon through tonight. The cold front associated with this system will move from west to east across the area, bringing northwest winds up to 50 MPH and some snow accumulations. The brief period of snow could bring very low visibilities at times given the strong winds.
