Milder air continued to push into the region today despite a good deal of clouds. There is a front stalled close to the region and that will continue to give us plenty of clouds tonight along with scattered flurries and drizzle. There may be a light covering of snow in a few spots, and drizzle with temperatures near freezing could leave a couple of icy spots. Temperatures will struggle to drop much more than the middle to upper 20s tonight. This front will still lie close to the area, if not lift northward on Saturday. This will allow for even milder air to move in but there could also still be some pockets of drizzle or a light wintry mix, especially near and north of I-80. A stronger cold front will approach the region later Saturday night into early Sunday with a band of showers. Ahead of the front, temperatures will push up to near above 40. This sets the stage for a mild Groundhog Day but with the chance for rain showers. Rain showers will change to snow showers in places the rest of Sunday with the chance for clearing later Sunday, especially the farther north you are located. This front will stall to the south, and a disturbance moving along it may bring another period of light snow Sunday night into very early Monday. Then an area of high pressure will settle over the region and give some sunshine on Monday with seasonable temperatures. The break will not last long as clouds will increase fast on Tuesday with another wintry mix will develop later Tuesday and last into Wednesday.
