(KFVS) -

Steady rain falling over much of the area has lead to some messy weather.

Bryan McCormick said its even cold enough for snow in our northern counties.

Roadways will likely be too warm for accumulation but some wet snow on decks, trees, etc. Rain will taper off by lunchtime with highs near 40

Tonight, temperatures s will fall into the mid-20s with a few clouds.

Expect the wintry mess to taper off by late-morning, but the clouds will stick around.

Another disturbance will deliver rain and snow on Sunday with highs only in the upper 30s.

Bryan says, another dusting will be possible as light snow returns for Christmas Eve. A good chunk of the Heartland will be experiencing snowfall during the middle of the day. This may once again create slick highways for a short time

Christmas Day will be cold and dry.

The next 7 days will be marked by unseasonably cold. We are keeping a close eye on a possible wintry system late next week

This holiday weekend will mark the beginning a long cold spell, with daily highs struggling to break out of the 30s.
