An umbrella and a shovel will help you get to the weekend. A low-pressure system gets cut-off from the flow of the jetstream and because of it, the low will hang out over the Midwest bringing a mix of precipitation for several days.
Some freezing fog, rain, and snow may cause slick roads Wednesday morning. Folks should be prepared and aware that some extra stopping distance will be a good idea for the commute into work. A mix of rain, sleet and snow will last until the evening when temps cool off enough to produce only snow overnight.
That kind of pattern will repeat itself Thursday and Friday. Snow will fall overnight and in the morning. Then as temps warm, mix with rain in the middle part of the day. Snowfall accumulations could end up around 2-5 inches of snow, but it may be difficult to measure, especially as rain will melt some of it.
