    The melting may also cause roof problems around the region with ice-damming damage and possible roof failures, particularly on flat roofs weighed down by snow and rainwater.

    There could also be wind damage Thursday as thunderstorms move into the area. It will be very breezy Friday with 25- to 35-mph winds bringing gusts past 45 mph.

    The end of the week will be dry, except for the possibility for a snow shower on Saturday. It will turn colder and breezy on Sunday with a high about 30 degrees and a low in the low teens.
