Light snow or flurries linger into Saturday morning thanks to a passing trough of low pressure. It isn’t much and really only collecting on the previous snow that still sits on the ground. Still, some roads will have a chance to collect this morning making things slippery. Temperatures remain around or below freezing.

As we move through Saturday, temperatures will warm to above freezing. This will transition the remaining snow showers to a rain/snow mix as they pass out of the state this afternoon. Accumulations from the passing rain/snow showers today will only be a trace amount but can still make for a slippery road. Especially bridges and overpasses. Use caution on roads through Saturday. As temperatures warm above freezing, the snow on the ground will begin to melt quickly. We will retain some into Sunday, but should mostly get rid of it, as temperatures rise to near 50 degrees Sunday afternoon. We may even get a little sun out of the deal. Rain showers return Sunday evening and will bring us through most of next week. Temperatures remain above freezing this week, meaning we will only see rain out of the passing storms.
