NBC 5 Forecast: Warming, Then Another Round of Winter

A warm front will move through overnight, and temperatures will begin to rise.  Tuesday will provide a nice warm-up into the 60s and perhaps 70s farther west.  But another wintry blast arrives on Wednesday.  It will start as a cold rain, but likely change to sleet by late Wednesday afternoon and evening.  Roads will be wet during the daylight hours, but will likely ice up and become hazardous Wednesday night into Thursday morning.  Heaviest accumulations of ice will probably be in the areas south of Interstate 20.  Most all of the ice should melt by Thursday afternoon, and the weekend looks sunny and warmer.
