Cold start, Rain develops Monday afternoon

A temperature of 65F (17C) by Thursday would beat the 61F (16C) expected in Madrid - while daytime highs of 46F (8C) expected in London next Monday would be below the 48F (9C) forecast for Vancouver in Canada.

Thursday, moisture could team up with colder air to provide the area with a wintry mix of rain, sleet and freezing rain.

This snow should taper off to an end later this afternoon. Icy areas on roads should develop later tonight as temperatures drop well into the 20s. We will stay mostly cloudy and wind will be from the north at 10-15 miles per hour. North northwest wind 5 to 9 miles per hour becoming calm.

Partly cloudy, with a low around 27.

What the models do agree on tonight is the timing of the precipitation, meteorologists say, with most of the rain occurring from about 9 p.m. this evening through mid-morning Tuesday. By Friday, we should be back up in the lower 60s.
