And according to 3News Meteorologist Jason Mikell, things are not about to improve right away.

"What is to follow in the wake of the front will be a quick change to much colder weather," Mikell said. "Temperatures in the 30s arrive in the evening and periods of rain become a cold, dreary, possibly mixed precipitation type of event for Friday."

Full on scattered, light snows could also arrive Friday into Saturday because of the 30-degree temperatures.
