Latest Forecast from Andrew Freiden:

Clouds, Cold (sub-freezing) temperatures and periods of snow will continue on and off today. Midday and afternoon accumulation will be mainly light but an extra coating of snow is possible with a band of moisture moving through now, plus more coming this afternoon.

Temperature-wise, we don't move much today We'll barely make it above freezing this afternoon. The High March sun angle should help to melt paved surfaces this afternoon.

The next few days bring dreary, damp conditions. Light freezing rain/drizzle/sleet is possible tomorrow morning. We are not anticipating any major icing issues but a few slick spots on bridges and overpasses cannot be ruled out. Light rain is possible through the day. Highs only climb into the upper 30s.

With cool air wedging down the spine of the Appalachians, Wednesday won't get much better...although it WILL be a little warmer! Highs climb into the upper 40s and low 50s. Light rain is possible through the day.

The end of the work week brings MUCH better weather. For Thursday (THE FIRST DAY OF SPRING!) we'll top out in the low 60s, under a partly cloudy sky. Friday will be mostly sunny and highs will be in the upper 60s.

Rain showers are possible on Saturday. Highs will be in the upper 60s.
