Warmer, wetter weather is arriving but not at a snap of the finger.  As the cold air exits enough of it will linger in spots to prompt snow showers that eventually turn to rain.  Highs today near 40, and a low tonight in the mid 30s, so expect a chance of rain and snow mixed overnight.  Bytomorrow it will all be rain with a high in the 40s and southerly wind at 10 mph or less.  The rest of the week looks more typical for late fall, clouds and rain showers.
