The National Weather Service is predicting that a “frontal system will bring a threat of lowland snow later Saturday into Sunday (Feb. 25-26) with light accumulations expected.”
“The weather gets interesting Saturday afternoon and night. A front will move through the area, bringing a shot of precipitation.
“A cool and showery pattern will continue the first half of next week for a rain/snow mix possible for the lowlands at times,” NOAA said.
Over the next five days or so, forecasters say we may get a total of around 2-3 inches of snow.
Low temps will range from around 25 to 37 degrees, and highs will reach around 44, which means that over the next week there may be a slushy mix of both the white and the wet stuff alternating.
