According to the National Weather Service, an unusually strong cold front will dive into the region today bringing a round of strong winds and numerous rain and snow showers. Rain and snow showers are expected to develop over most areas by this afternoon, with even isolated thunderstorms possible, producing pellets and lightning. Heavier snow showers, especially those in the mountains, could result in sudden slick roadways and traffic incidents. This rain and snow shower pattern will likely occur again Friday and Saturday.
