We're by no means going to see a major storm with lots of snow and ice on Saturday, but it could still be a bit messy at times. We start out with a cold rain, mixed with some freezing rain through the morning hours. The window for ice accumulations is limited, but there could still be up to a tenth of an inch in the highest elevations, which is why the Winter Weather Advisory was issued for parts of the viewing area. After that, we all switch over to rain for the remainder of the day. Rain totals will be on the order of 0.50-1.00” which will make things soggy, but it's manageable. Snow begins to mix in after sunset, changing to mainly all snow by Sunday morning. Continued rain and snow showers linger on Sunday, with a few inches of wet snow accumulation possible in the highest elevations by Sunday night.
Wrap around cold air combined with leftover moisture will touch off isolated snow showers on Monday before things turn quiet the rest of the week. No major cold is in sight all week, though weak disturbances from the northwest will keep clouds around every single day. By next Friday, you guessed it, the next storm system will once again be knocking on our door.
