Low pressure will be moving off the coast this morning, light rain from the system will likely mix and change to snow before ending later this morning. Snow accumulations have been lowered so now only 1/2 an inch is expected mainly on colder surfaces. Higher accumulations are likely further inland especially over the higher elevations.
Brief high pressure will give us a rather nice day on Sunday with light winds and seasonably cool temperatures.
Our next system will give us precipitation early Monday morning into Tuesday morning. At this time it again looks to be a mainly rain event with snow likely well to our north and west. Rainfall amounts of 1-2 inches are expected.
Wednesday will be a dry but very windy day as the coastal low strengthens offshore and high pressure builds from the west.
