Today: Thickening clouds and cold with snow arriving this afternoon; up to an inch by sunset. High: 28

Tonight: Light snow ending before midnight with one to three inches total; clearing late. Low: 18

Monday: Partly sunny and cold. High: 26 Low: 8

The area will start out with some sun Sunday morning, but as the clouds continue to thicken, any sunshine out there will fade away.

The thickening clouds are the result of an approaching low, which will overspread the region with snow from west to east this afternoon. The snow will then continue through the evening hours, but taper off for most between 7 and 10 p.m.

This nuisance snow event will leave behind snowfall totals between 1 to 3 inches, but the 3 inch totals will generally be reserved for higher elevations. Otherwise, afternoon highs today will be in the upper 20s and lower 30s with some clearing occurring later tonight in the wake of this snow event.

That clearing will set the region up of partly sunny skies on Monday, but it will still be cold with highs only bouncing back into the mid 20s. You can expect similar conditions to that on Tuesday as we experience an equal mix of sun and clouds and highs in the mid 20s.
