freeze upon contact with the ground, leaving a coating of glaze. sleet is frozen precipitation that falls as ice pellets. ice pellets occur when snowflakes melt into raindrops as they passed through a thin layer of warmer area. the raindrops than re-freeze then fall onto a layer of subfreezing air near the ground. ok. let' s talk about snow. this one is a little easier. it happens when the air in the clouds and on ground are freezing. hale never falls in the winter. it only falls out of warm season thunderstorms. there is a big difference to how it forms. that is this week' s "what the winter weather?" we want your questions. send them to wmur.com or facebook us.

temperatures with a much lighter the big change for us. we will have a much lighter wind through the afternoon. half of the 40' s and then submit 30' s -- some mid-30' s in the north country. high temperatures today, low-end mid 60' afternoon. a much lighter breeze at around five miles per hour into the afternoon. it may turn into a seabreeze later on this afternoon. anywhere from the 30' s to the lower ranges of the 40' s. 34-45 overnight. tomorrow, we recover yet again back into the 60' s. lower 60' s north to mid and upper 60' s. then you will notice the clouds starting to work their way in. clouds, maybe a few breaks during the day on friday with highs in the 60' s to lower 70' s. a front approaches late in the day.
once that goes by, the clearing skies, the breeze picks up and temperatures fall off in time for the weekend. a lot of areas only up through the 40' s by the time we get through sunday afternoon. highs getting back through the 60' s in most locations. certainly, a mild day and then we will fall back from the mid-30' s to the mid-40' s overnight. a little bit more fog around by the time we get to friday morning. that will be our best chance for a shower or two. we could have one early in the day or late in the day. the wind will pick up and bring in the cooler air. highs only in the 50' s, but feeling cooler than that on saturday. sunday, highs only in the 40' s before the recovery by the beginning and middle of next week as the ridge comes back in again and could be around for the first couple of weeks for
