    The winter weather that descended Friday night is not yet over. More snow is coming overnight Saturday into Sunday and again Sunday afternoon before the frigid temperatures move in at the start of the work week.

    Conditions will remain mostly dry tonight until around 2 a.m. A rain/snow mix will start off the system, but it will turn it into snow by Sunday morning with a possible accumulation of 1 to 2 inches.

    Snow will fall again in the afternoon with another 1 inch of possible accumulation.

    Temperatures were hovering just above freezing Saturday evening, but they will continue to fall until it reaches below zero by Monday morning. Monday will start out with sunshine, but the high temperatures is only 8 degrees. Wind chill temperatures are expected to be well below zero.

    Another winter storm system will move in overnight Monday and into Tuesday, bringing more possible snow accumulation. With this system, warmer temperatures will move in, with a high of 22 degrees on Tuesday.

    The warmer temperatures will be short-lived, however, as the frigid temperatures will move back in by Wednesday, which is the coldest day in the forecast with a high of just 3 degrees.
