Then a mix of sun and clouds.
Sunday: A 40 percent chance of showers.
It is fair to say that this year March Madness doesn't just refer to the basketball-it is an apt description of our weather too! "As of now though, we are seeing those areas to get about 4 to 6 inches of snow".
"Although spring did begin this week, winter weather still can be a factor when traveling for the next few weeks", Illinois Transportation Secretary Randy Blankenhorn said in a statement. What was the snowiest?
Another late-season snowstorm will hit Virginia this weekend, but this time the bulk of the snow will fall across the mountains and miss Richmond to the west.
It won't feel much like spring as temperatures will continue to trend downward.
A strong Pacific storm system continue to affect portion of northeastern Montana this morning through this evening.
By Thursday afternoon, daytime highs will warm to 10 or more degrees above normal some areas.
High pressure will build southward into New England early next week. The snow, said McDonnal, "causes the air mass to be a little more unstable".
Saturday looks to be mostly sunny, with a slight chance for snow showers overnight into Sunday, the weather service said. Evaporative cooling will drop temperatures in to the lower to mid-30s along and north of I-74 allowing rain to mix and change to snow.
Tonight, will be warm and muggy with lows only down to the mid 60s. Sunday should see some clearing skies later in the day, as the weak disturbance pushes off to see.
Plentiful sunshine resumes on Monday despite the chilly afternoon readings into the mid and upper 40s. Despite the ridging beginning to build in, a weak low and front are expected to make it into the Southeast late in the weekend.
Tuesday: Patchy drizzle. Cloudy, with a high near 63. This would also bring much cooler temperatures Tuesday and Wednesday. There's the chance for a couple afternoon rain or snow showers as a weak disturbance in the atmosphere swings through the area.
