That snow will come to an end early Thursday morning then the rest of the day will be cloudy to partly sunny with just some scattered some more flurries.

Today (Wednesday): Cold and windy is the story today, despite mostly sunny skies through much of the day. By tomorrow morning most areas will pick up between 1 and 2 inches of fresh snow. Temperatures tomorrow will remain below average, with highs only expected to be in the low 20s. Because winds will be blowing from the east over Lake Michigan, the east-central parts of the state will be subject to lake enhancement and see more snow. Look for increasing clouds by late afternoon. A bit of a breeze makes wind chill values feel like the 20s.

But looking ahead to next week and temperatures could sink to lows of -17C due to a "Polar vortex".

Skies will begin to clear by early evening.

An approaching cold front on Friday will boost temperatures to the upper 40s to mid-50s.

Friday will also be blustery with variable cloudiness and highs in the 20s.

Sunday starts dry but with clouds on the increase again. Tonight will be a bitterly cold night with lows in the lower teens and clearing. But with Sunday highs in the 40s, anything that falls should be in the form of rain. However, a flurry or snow shower can't be completely ruled out, mainly across the Poconos. There are still a lot of details to be worked out on how cold it may get and the potential for snow.
