Monday starts the week quiet; then cold air and snow chances return

A few snow showers remain possible Tuesday as well. Wind chill values in the low 20's can be expected. We will have mostly dry conditions especially in the latter half of the day with a mostly cloudy sky. Highs will make it to 32, but by this evening, temps will be in the low 20s. The overnight period remains cloudy with some snow showers late.

Temperatures will be significantly colder by midweek, with Wednesday's daytime temperatures struggling to make it out of the teens. We can expect to see snow accumulations from 1 - 3 inches with the widespread snow showers. Through the early hours cloud will increase from the southwest with snow reaching the southwest of the region, along with freshening easterly winds.

Outside of the snow chances, much colder air will blow into the state.

Another clipper system will move in Thursday night into Friday. Accumulations will be very minor with an inch at best if any accumulations at all. But as temperatures drop back below freezing tonight, expect any water that runs off from the snow melt to refreeze tonight, so be wary of black ice or slick spots if traveling overnight. A system quickly develops and moves away of the coast, so there's a small chance the area gets clipped.

WEEKEND OUTLOOK: The weekend brings a shift in the pattern, making for a milder stretch.

Chilly with times of sun and clouds. Temperatures are near 40 degrees on Saturday under partly sunny skies.

Have a great Monday!
