Today's Forecast: A cold front will sweep across the area for the afternoon and evening. While there is not much moisture associated with this system, it will likely bring light rain with a quick switch-over to snow for a few of the valleys with light snow in the mountains. Highs will be in the low 40s for most of the region today with winds out of the southwest gusting between 20-30 mph. Snow accumulations for the valleys will be a trace at best, but light rain with temperatures falling below freezing could make some roads and bridge decks slick overnight.
