We're back to mostly sunny skies Wednesday afternoon with a light breeze and highs rebounding to the mid 60s, 5º-8º above the seasonal average. The mild weather doesn't last long as our next storm system swings through Thursday bringing gusty wind, much cooler temps, and a widespread rain and snow chance across the region. A Winter Weather Advisory is in place above 6000 ft. from 4 a.m. until 6 p.m. with gusts as high as 40 mph and snow accumulations up to 7" making travel difficult.
