A slow moving upper level low pressure system will move through the
region tonight. As a result, areas of rain and snow will gradually
diminish late tonight and during the morning hours on Saturday. For
Saturday afternoon it will remain cool, with highs only around 50
degrees. A northwesterly flow aloft will then reside over the
region from Sunday through next Wednesday. As a result, expect a
slow warming trend for next week, and just a small chance for a
passing light shower.
