It's going to remain wet today in Lansing, but it is warming enough that the National Weather Service has called off a freezing drizzle advisory.

But look for it to get cold - really cold - beginning Thursday and continuing through the weekend.

Shortly after 9:30 a.m. today, a brief thunderstorm that dropped pea-sized hail passed through the city.

The Weather Service said rain and widespread drizzle would continue throughout the morning hours with periods of rain and a chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon.

Highs are expected in the mid 30s to lower 40s.

There'll be northeast winds of 5 to 15 mph with gusts up to 30 mph in the afternoon. Chance of precipitation is 90 percent.

Tonight, forecasters say rain is likely with a chance of light freezing rain or snow in the evening. It should begin to snow after midnight, though little or no accumulation is likely. Lows are expected in the lower 20s with north winds of 10 to 20 mph and gusty.

Though the precipitation will be ending Thursday, temperatures will begin to slowly fall in the afternoon from a high only in the mid 20s. Thursday night, the mercury is expected to drop to about 5 with wind chill readings ranging from minus 6 to 4.
