Know Your Winter Weather Terms

Icy, frosty & freezing

After cloudy skies and a few flurries Tuesday morning, the clouds broke for some sunshine as temperatures peaked in the mid-30s.

Snow should start tapering off by mid-evening in the metro Buffalo area and scattered snow showers are likely in the late evening. That difference in pressure will bring brisk winds with gusts of 20-25 miles per hour here on Thursday.

The Parkland will be experiencing some winter weather tonight into Wednesday morning.

Former President Park, who continues to deny any wrongdoing, is on trial for bribery, coercion and abuse of power. The scandal brought down the government of President Park Geun-hye a year ago .

According to the Boston Globe, the storm system will dump heavy, wet snow before transitioning to rain at some point late Wednesday.

South of those counties to I-64 across IN and KY, expect a period of freezing rain.

Here's the afternoon forecast from the National Weather Service.

Workers Trapped Down South African Goldmine
According to local news channel eNCA, the mine had generators but there were fears they might trip while bringing the miners up. Mine safety is a perennial concern in South Africa , which operates some of the world's deepest and most risky mines.

In terms of accumulations, the traditional rule of thumb that the farther north you go the more snow you get will apply again in this case. Any accumulation of ice will be light but some icy spots could occur through Wednesday morning. Then another wave of snow is likely, from after sunset to before 11 p.m., according to the weather service.

Those with commutes to Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York City and Boston should use caution as a mixture of snow, sleet and/or freezing rain is possible at the onset of precipitation on Wednesday. "Far northern Pennsylvania into the southern tier of NY will see the most snow with widespread 6-12" totals expected. Thursday night looks quite cold as lows drop well into the teens as a weak area of high pressure crests overhead and provide the drier weather. Some models show it persisting into Friday and dumping around 7 inches on the area while others show it as a quick hitter dumping insignificant amounts.

Wednesday temperatures for Greater Lowell will see a daytime high of 31 degrees and nighttime low of 23 degrees.

Windows 10 S just got axed
As per latest estimates, for the first time, the newer version of the popular OS overtook the eight-year-old version. Plus there is also the issue of familiarity, habit, and comfort that might see some users choose to skip the upgrade.

TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy with rain/freezing rain developing from south to north, mixing with/changing to snow north of the Ohio River before ending by daybreak. Those totals are dependent on where the snow and wintry mix boundaries set up.
