A low pressure system traversing the Great Lakes will be responsible for bringing a mix of precipitation into our area this weekend. Warm air advection and moisture running ahead of this system will cause light snowfall inland with some rain near the coast and to our south. Later in the weekend an arctic front will poised on our doorstep, ushering another wave of very cold air for early next week.

Today: Partly sunny with increasing clouds in the afternoon. Light southwesterly breezes and seasonal high of around 38F (3C) are expected.

Tonight: Cloudy with some light snow developing inland, mixed precipitation possible along the immediate coast and to the south. Low near 30F (-1C)

Saturday: Cloudy with light snow continuing inland, sprinkles in coastal locations. Winds gradually turning to west and northwest. High near 40F (4C)

Sunday outlook: A chance of snow squalls early, becoming windy, clearing and turning much colder with midday highs in the 20s (-2C to -6C) falling into the 10s (-7C to -12C) after sunset.
