Forecast Discussion

We have a relaxing weekend ahead compared to the last! The low pressure system to our east keeps clouds and some flurries or light snow around into the evening. Accumulations aren't going to be more than a dusting in most areas for this event.

Other than that, it's going to be an uneventful next few days as a high pressure sets in. Skies clear on Saturday for a chilly but mostly sunny weekend.

A low pressure system kicks up in the gulf early in the morning on Tuesday and moves along the Gulf Coast before turning northeast into the Atlantic Tuesday evening. This brings us a chance of light snow in the daytime hours on Tuesday. A cold front moves through Tues. night dropping temperatures again to finish off the week.
