The same slow-moving storm system that has been plaguing the region with occasional snow and slick conditions for the past couple of days continues to produce thick clouds and light doses of snow across our area today keeping road conditions sloppy. We'll have light snow through much of the morning with a quick half-inch to an inch of accumulation that will likely slow the morning commute. Expect occasional doses of light snow through the afternoon and evening with an additional half inch possible. Snowfall totals overall will be in the one to one and a half inch range for today with temperatures climbing a few degrees to around the freezing mark. A spot or two of drizzle or freezing drizzle can't be completely ruled out this afternoon and this evening as that storm system pulls away from the area.
A little light snow will be until mid-morning Saturday with little if any additional accumulation. Skies will remain gray and gloomy in the wake of the departing storm system and temperatures will make their way into the lower 30s once again. As we've seen in the past couple of days, winds will remain light through the day Saturday and even Sunday.
Clouds will hang around through the day Sunday as a weak disturbance from the northwest brings light snow showers or flurries for the afternoon, but little if any accumulation is expected. High temperatures will be around 30 degrees Sunday afternoon.
We'll have a few more chances of snow headed our way from the northwest thanks to this subtle pattern change. Look for a little light snow late Tuesday through Wednesday and again late next Friday into early next Saturday morning. High temperatures, meanwhile, will remain steady in the lower 30s through the next several days.
