Areas of light snow showers will continue to fall southwest of the state but will diminish this afternoon. The high temperatures will be in the 20s and the mid to lower 30s. The overnight temperatures will remain well below freezing. Tomorrow will be mostly sunny, and the wind will return. Wednesday will be mostly cloudy with slightly warmer temperatures. Late-night Wednesday, a minor system will produce a mix of rain/snow showers that will carry on until Thursday.
