In addition, a few spotty flurries or snow showers will be moving through today, especially in the afternoon.

Little to no accumulation is expected with these.

Saturday stays chilly with morning temps in the teens and highs only in the mid 20s.

We will at least stay dry with some sunshine breaking through in the afternoon.

Warmer air starts to push in on Sunday with highs in the low 40s and sunshine.
