OFF AND ON SHOWERS! 40°F 10:00 AM Hey hey Giovanni here. Showers to continue today as a weak system continues to impact our region with showers and snow above 4000ft. Clearing is expected tonight. Expect today's daytime highs in the mid 40s with overnight lows in the low 30s.

Sunday looks to start out mostly dry, with a chance of showers arriving later in the day. Our weather will really become interesting as a colder set of storms arrive on Tuesday evening with a much colder storm expected late Wednesday.
