The storm arrived overnight along with a brief surge of warmer air. 

The heaviest rain is expected just after the end of the Thursday morning commute. There will be heavy downpours into the afternoon Thursday that could cause ice jams even though the high temperature will climb to the mid  to upper 40s. The storm should wrap up by around 5 p.m. Thursday.

Colder air will return overnight with a low around 22 degrees.

Friday, Jan. 25 will be sunny with the high temperature in the mid 30s.

A new Arctic blast will be in full force overnight Friday into Saturday, Jan. 26 with the low temperature dropping to around 12 degrees. 

Saturday will be mostly sunny with a high in the mid to upper 20s.
