Winter Storm Part 2

Things didn't turn out the way I was hoping. The snow continued to fall until about 11:30 when it transitioned into sleet. By 12noon, the sleet was freezing rain and rain. About 3 inches of snow fell during the morning hours, but half of that is gone now after being beaten down by the sleet and melted by the rain. Temperatures rose to 31.5 and held there for the afternoon, but began to rise to 32.4 by 6pm. We have now been holding at 32.1 for the last several hours. They are saying that that winds should shift to the N later this evening and then the temperatures should begin to fall. They are also saying that we will get another 2-4 inches of snow. Hopefully, we'll be on the high end of that and that the snow gets blown around a lot during the day tomorrow.
